Fraser on LTIR, Leafs call up Devane


We wrote yesterday about Mark Fraser’s knee injury and how it was expected to allow young defenseman Morgan Rielly to make his NHL debut for the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

As it turns out, Fraser has been placed on long-term injured reserve (per David Alter at 590 The Fan), meaning the big defender will miss at least 10 games/24 days.

In a related move, the Leafs have called up forward Jamie Devane from AHL Toronto.
