Leafs Recall Loov

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Thursday that the team has recalled defenceman Viktor Loov from the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies on an emergency basis.

Loov, 23, has collected 11 points (one goal, 10 assists) in 48 games with the Marlies this season. The Sodertalje, Sweden native has yet to make his NHL debut after being selected by the Maple Leafs in the seventh round (209th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
