Maple Leafs Make Multiple Roster Moves

The Toronto Maple Leafs are hosting the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night and have made some changes to their roster after the morning skate. 

Benn returns to the lineup after an early season injury and a quick conditioning stint in the minors. His game is much needed in Toronto as their blueline depth has taken a hit throughout the first few weeks of the season. The rugged defenseman is likely to sit against the Golden Knights but should draw into the lineup very soon. Benn's style of play could help replace a little bit of what Jake Muzzin brings to the table for the Maple Leafs.

Mete heads back down to the Toronto Marlies after showing well with his recent play. Mete used his speed a number of times to jump in the rush and showed good chemistry with a lot of the offensive weapons of the Maple Leafs. One assist in five games so far with the big club and given Toronto's early injury struggles, it's likely Leafs Nation sees Mete back up in no time.

Holmberg was brought up and given a look as a candidate for the third-line center.  The 23-year-old former sixth-round pick played just over 10 minutes in his only game and received minutes on both the power play and penalty kill. The organization thinks highly of Holmberg and he's likely to see some more NHL action later on this season.
