TSN's Darren Dreger reported that Korbinian Holzer is up with the big club as a precaution.

He's been playing in the AHL playoffs so he's more ready to go than Jesse Blacker, who had been up with the Maple Leafs as an extra. It's expected that Blacker will head back to the minors and Holzer will be scratched for Game 7.

Korbinian Holzer might be going to Boston with the Maple Leafs for Game 7.

He was seen at the airport which led to speculation that he was traveling with the team. Holzer has been playing in the AHL postseason with the Marlies. It isn't clear if a defenseman was injured or will be scratched for Monday's game and the Leafs won't hold a morning skate.

Korbinian Holzer is gaining more and more trust in coach Randy Carlyle.

The German blueliner was selected with the 111th pick in the 2006 draft, and he has six games under his belt. And the 24-year-old is quickly becoming one of the more trusted defensemen on the team; he was on the ice in the final seconds of Toronto's 3-2 win. He played 23:41, only second to Dion Phaneuf.

Korbinian Holzer was called up from the minors and played on Monday.

He received nearly 18 minutes of ice time in his second appearance of the season. The 24-year-old plays a physical style, but he doesn't have any fantasy value at this time.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled defenseman Korbinian Holzer from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.

Holzer was sent to the minors yesterday, only to be recalled today. Fortunately the Maple Leafs minor league affiliate is just a few miles from the ACC so all it cost them is a short cab ride over for Holzer, which he probably will pay himself. He will likely be a healthy scratch for Toronto tonight.
