Trevor Moore was recalled from Toronto of the American Hockey League on Sunday and will make his NHL debut for the Maple Leafs. He has 24 points (17 goals, seven assists) in 27 AHL games this season.

The Maple Leafs will be without forward Tyler Ennis, who broke his ankle in Toronto's 5-3 victory against the New York Rangers on Saturday.

Goaltender Garret Sparks will start for the Maple Leafs, who are looking for their fourth-straight win.

Detroit is without forward Andreas Athanasiou, who will not play because of an upper body injury.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
