With a key member of the Leafs sidelined with an injury, an opening made way for Joseph Duszak to be added to the training camp roster.

The 23-year-old defenceman has been part of the Leafs organization since the 2018-19 season where he’s been spending his time developing in the minors. Duszak split the past year between the Newfoundland Growlers and Toronto Marlies where he recorded 35 points in 34 ECHL games along with 18 points in 23 AHL games.
He wasn’t listed in TLN’s prospect rankings but remains an intriguing option for the blueline as either a fringe player or a piece in a trade. His chances of making the Leafs roster this season are extremely slim, but perhaps he can try and impress the coaching staff enough to reassure them that his development is going well.
Kerfoot out, Engvall in
@Alexander Kerfoot remains out of commission for the time being, meaning Pierre Engvall has been moved to the NHL group for the first scrimmage session that will take place this afternoon.
