The Toronto Maple Leafs have loaned forward Nic Petan to the AHL’s Toronto Marlies, the team announced Friday.

Petan, 24, has appeared in 16 games with the Maple Leafs this season, recording three assists. Toronto acquired him from the Winnipeg Jets at last season’s trade deadline in an effort to add depth up front. He was a second-round pick in 2013 with the Jets.
