As quickly as it began, the @Brennan Menell era has ended in Toronto.
Prior to the deadline, Steve Dangle reported that the Leafs were trying to move Menell, who wanted a shot at the NHL level that wasn’t given to him with a crowded blueline in Toronto. He will get said chance on a Flyers team that is closer to the basement than a playoff spot so he should be able to get some playing time with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, hence why they acquired the defenceman.
The move opens up a roster spot that the Leafs could use to sign anyone of their choosing. There are reports that Kyle Dubas is looking to sign @Nick Abruzzese and @Matthew Knies, the latter of whom Dubas did not want to move in the infamous botched trade for @Marc-Andre Fleury and @Brandon Hagel.
In 20 AHL games, Menell produced one goal, four assists, and five points.
