Leafs PR: Toronto Maple Leafs forward Andreas Johnsson was put on the IR.
- Cap Friendly: “Without a corresponding move, the #Leafs recalls of Marchment & Korshkov would put them over the 23 player limit It is therefore our assumption that they have also placed Johnsson on LTIR, giving the club a grand total of $24M in LTIR relief, of which they have $8.8M remaining”
