Maple Leafs defenceman Rasmus Sandin is headed back to the Toronto Marlies after six games in the NHL.

The Leafs announced Monday they were loaning the 19-year-old to their AHL affiliate, while recalling defenceman Kevin Gravel.

Sandin showed tremendous promise in training camp, earning more and more ice time over the preseason until the coaching staff made the decision to keep him on the season-opening roster.

Sandin impressed at the outset of the regular season, showcasing his speed, puck movement and hockey sense but he began to lose net battles in games against St. Louis, Tampa and Detroit.

That, combined with the eventual return of Travis Dermott from injury, created a log jam for jobs on the third defensive pairing. Dermott is likely to get one of those spots, while the other one —and the role of the seventh defenceman — featured a four-man battle between Sandin, Martin Marincin, Justin Holl and now Gravel.

Sandin has the least amount of experience of that group. The decision to return him to the Marlies — with whom he spent all of last season — allows him to play every game and develop more instead of settling into a role where he could be a healthy scratch for most games. He averaged 12:13 of ice time while recording a pair of assists with the Leafs this season.

Gravel, 27, has played in 106 career NHL games and was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the fifth round — 148th overall — in the 2010 draft.

The Leafs (3-2-1) are coming off a 5-2 road victory on Saturday against the Red Wings. Their next game is Tuesday night on home ice against the winless Minnesota Wild (0-4-0).
