No details have been released in regards to his injury yet or timetable for a return. The 24 year old had last played with the Leafs on November 24th and hadn't recorded a point in any of the three games he played this season. In response to the move, the Leafs also announced they called up winger Kasperi Kapanen from the Toronto Marlies. Kapanen has also dressed up for three NHL games this season, however like Soshnikov, has yet to put anything on the scoreboard. The last time he played with the Leafs was November 4th. More to come after practice.
