For the third time in the last 10 days, goaltender Kasimir Kaskisuo has been called up by the Toronto Maple Leafs, this time on an emergency basis.

Kaskisuo has yet to appear in a game at the NHL level this season, but has served as backup in the last three Maple Leafs games, being returned to the AHL’s Toronto Marlies after each one.

The 25-year-old will serve as backup again on Monday against the Nashville Predators when Michael Hutchinson, acquired in a trade from the Florida Panthers on Dec. 29, makes his third consecutive start.

Frederik Andersen (groin) and Garret Sparks (concussion) remain unavailable while recovering from injuries.

Kaskisuo has appeared in 13 games in the AHL this season, posting a 4-6-1 record with a 3.92 goals-against average, .868 save percentage and one shutout.
