Hopefully not for long.

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced this morning that forward Kasperi Kapanen has been sent down to the Toronto Marlies on a loan basis.

The Marlies play today and tomorrow, while the Leafs are out of action until the 28th, so connecting the dots, Kapanen was sent down to get some playing time and help the AHL club win a couple of games.

He's been something of a spark plug to the Leafs since his call-up, winning the favour of the fans, and hopefully the coaching staff as well.

Kapanen has 2 goals in 6 games this season with the Leafs.
