The Maple Leafs announced (Twitter link) that the guard was drafted Mac Hollowell Immediately from Toronto of the AHL. They had a job on the open list, so there was no need to take the appropriate step.
Holloway went into six games with the big club in his last recall, his first taste of NHL action. The 24-year-old has fared relatively well, picking up a pair of assists in those contests while averaging just under 13 minutes of playing time a night. While he has yet to score a goal with the Marlies, he has collected 10 assists in a dozen contests with them, one of which came last night in Rockford.
Timothy Lillegren was injured in Thursday’s game but was a full participant in practice for the second pair, and head coach Sheldon Keefe hinted after practice to Sports Illustrated’s David Alter (Twitter link) that Lilliegren isn’t the only blueliner who has broken out, necessitating Hollowell’s recall. Toronto currently has eight blueliners on their active roster, and all of them were at the morning skate.
