TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled defenceman Kevin Gravel from the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies on Monday, while loaning defenceman Rasmus Sandin to the AHL club.

Gravel was originally selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the fifth-round (148th overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft.
Sandin, a first-round pick in 2018, has two assists and two penalty minutes through his first six NHL games with the Maple Leafs this season.
The 19-year-old from Sweden has averaged 12:13 of ice time.
Toronto hosts the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.
