Maple Leafs place Agostino, Petan on waivers; Read released from PTO

The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed Kenny Agostino, Kevin Gravel, Nic Petan and Garrett Wilson on waivers, while Matt Read has been released from his PTO and signed with the Toronto Marlies, the team announced Monday.

The series of roster moves come days before the Leafs are slated to kick off their 2019-20 campaign when they host the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Arena on Wednesday.

The club also announced that Yegor Korshkov has been assigned to Marlies, while Kalle Kossila and Mason Marchment were designated injured non-roster players.

The moves likely indicate that the team’s first-round picks in 2017 and 2018, respectively, defencemen Timothy Liljegren and Rasmus Sandin, have cracked the roster.
