Leafs have recalled Josh Leivo. Conditioning stint finally over. Expect some roster shuffling Monday.

Was pointless in 5 games. Played on a line with Gauthier and Kapanen in all 5 games.

I don't think there is anything to read in this. It is five games, and IMO Gauthier is only a defensive player. I never thought Gauthier was ever going to be a point getting forward.

Leivo has never impressed me at all.  The only thing I ever remember him doing is cold-cocking Reimer.

He has scored at a 20 goal pace in the NHL, I still think there is potential there.

It's worth noting he was a late bloomer in Junior.

Keefe had some encouraging things to say about him yesterday, basically that he was getting a lot of chances they just didn't go in and that he was basically just working his way into game action since he didn't get much preseason game time.

Might Leivo still be listed as on Injured Reserve?  It doesn't make sense to me that he could be, considering he just played 5 games, but technically speaking, he wasn't ever activated off of IR.  The LTIR/IR Conditioning Loan is considered a "test to see if the player is healthy enough" but that doesn't mean the player is off of IR.

All 24 players are practising right now, so yeah he must still be on the IR somehow.

According to Mirtle last week, Leivo was never on the active roster (injured in Training camp), and oddly, Soshnikov has not been listed on the active roster online since his recall. As for what that means in terms of why we're rolling 24 roster players in practice now, I have no idea. We don't play until Tuesday, so there is time to make a move, right?

The team technically has until noon tomorrow to get down to 23 players. They didn't put anyone on waivers today, so, either someone else is injured, someone like Hyman or Soshnikov going to the Marlies, or, least likely, there's a trade (most likely of the minor variety) in the works.

EDIT:

kristen_shilton: Leivo will keep practicing and is not cleared to play per Babcock

There it is - Leivo is still on the IR.

Because saying "we honestly just don't know what to do with him" would have probably been a little shady.
