The Leafs announced on Thursday that Toronto Marlies captain Ryan Hamilton has been recalled while the team has placed forward Mike Brown on IR. Brown left Tuesday’s game against Buffalo with a shoulder injury.
This season, Hamilton has 27 points (18 eight goals, nine assists) in 38 games. Hamilton was named the AHL All-Star Game MVP on Monday after recording a hat-trick. Last season, Hamilton played two games with the Maple Leafs and recorded one assist.
Brown has been held scoreless in five games this season with 29 penalty minutes.
