    The @MapleLeafs have recalled forward Andreas Johnsson from @TorontoMarlies (AHL). In addition, defenceman Calle Rosen has been recalled on emergency basis.

    Guess Zaitsev is a no go

    This is interesting with Matthews slated for a return Thursday or Saturday and Zaitsev only sick.

    Unless results came back on Zaitsev and it’s something worse

    Pretty big slap to the face of Martin and Leivo that they want to get Johnsson in over them...but he's totally earned it.

    Johnsson-Plekanec-Kapanen until Matthews comes back is a hell of a 4th line.

    Forget who tweeted it but Matthews is more likely a Saturday return against Montreal.

    Zaitsev's illness sounds bad.

    I hope Andreas Johnsson isn't put on a 4th line role.

    Happy to see Johnsson up but where does he play?

    Why?

    He’s got a terrific defensive game. He’s a great fit beside Plekanec and Kapanen, if that’s the plan (I assume we’ll see at practice)

    He won't be thrown onto the shutdown line with Kadri or the top line in place of Hyman so he will be on the 4th line almost guaranteed. Obviously JVR and Bozak won't be split up as they never are.

    I mean this is good news for Johnsson but I'm not sure he'll slot in. Sounds to me like just insurance unless someone else got injured yesterday. Rosen is 100% just a warm body.

    Marlies clinched a playoff spot all ready, so it's a good time to call up players for Babcock to get another look and what not.

    Prior to this year i didnt believe Johnsson would be a future NHLer. He definitely has proved me wrong this season. He has excellent work ethic and determination. I truly think he is a top 6 NHL forward.

    Johnsson. Finally! I'm more excited about our 4th line than our so-called 3rd line (Bozak's line).

    Dermott and Rosen could be a pretty fun pairing

    I'm hoping for a more top9 role, but I was unaware of his defensive game.

    Johnsson should get PP time as well, I can see him fitting in well in that 2nd unit.

    Easiest way to sum up Johnsson is he goes to the net.

    That is an exciting element to add to our team.

    They've got to use Johnsson on the 2nd PP unit. If they fix that unit, then I'm extremely confident about this team doing well in the playoffs.
