The team also placed forwards Darryl Boyce and Joey Crabb, and defenceman Matt Lashoff, on waivers.

The 23-man roster includes rookie defenceman Jake Gardiner and rookie forward Matt Frattin.

Toronto will start the season without injured forward Nazem Kadri and suspended forward Clarke MacArthur.
