Matt Frattin has been called up by Toronto and will suit up Monday night.

Frattin was sent down on Saturday in a paper transaction but has since been recalled by the Leafs. He will be inserted on the fourth line with Matt Carrick and David Booth to face the Hurricanes. In seven games played this season, he has yet to register a point. He has no fantasy value for the time being.

Matt Frattin has been scratched, again.

With just six games under his belt this season, why did they trade for him again? Trevor Smith and Josh Leivo, two players you may or may not have heard of, both suited up instead versus Nashville on Tuesday night.

Matt Frattin will replace Brandon Kozun in the Toronto Maple Leafs lineup as they face the Detroit Red Wings in the second of a back-to-back set.

Frattin has 35 points and 40 PIM in 127 career regular season games. He's unlikely to make a positive impact in Saturday's contest.

Looking at the Maple Leaf line rushes in practice Saturday morning it seems Matt Frattin and Carter Ashton will be healthy scratches.

Frattin did not have a terrific training camp and Toronto coach Randy Carlyle has called him out on it. It would not be surprising to see Frattin in the press box most nights this season.

Toronto coach Randy Carlyle wants Matt Frattin to elevate his game.

"Frattin has had a mediocre camp," Carlyle said. "Frattin needs to find a way to regenerate some enthusiasm. I feel sorry for him right now. The puck is not his friend. It's going away from him versus bouncing for him. He's a guy who has to be physical. And usually when he's physical, goals follow him around." As it stands right now, he is on the bubble to open the regular season with the Maple Leafs.

Matt Frattin is considered to be in the running to compete for a top-six forward job at training camp.

"That's (coach Randy) Carlyle’s call," said Frattin. "I just have to come out here and play like I can and wherever they can fit me in, that's where I have to go and try and get as much ice as I can. I'm a well-rounded guy who can come with speed. The biggest thing is to build chemistry with guys you can stick with. They've brought a lot of guys in and everyone's going to be fighting for jobs." He had some chemistry with Nazem Kadri during the lockout-shortened season and could be a fit there. However, that spot may be David Clarkson's to lose. Off-season additions David Booth and Mike Santorelli are expected to battle for a second-line spot as well.

Matt Frattin is excited to be back in Toronto.

"You don't hear too many times of a player coming back to a team just a year after leaving," he said. "You definitely see the good players you are traded for and want to show people that you have your own value." Frattin feels he learned some good defensive tricks from Kings coach Darryl Sutter. He's also working on his speed and strength over the summer.

Matt Frattin has inked a two-year contract with the Maple Leafs.

He was reacquired by Toronto earlier in the day for Jerry D'Amigo and a conditional seventh round draft pick in 2015. Frattin was a restricted free agent.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have re-acquired Matt Frattin.

The Maple Leafs gave Columbus Jerry D'Amigo and a conditional seventh-round pick in exchange for Frattin who was dealt from Toronto last summer as part of the trade for goaltender Jonathan Bernier. Frattin struggled mightily this season as he scored twice and added four assists with the Kings before LA sent him to Columbus as part of the Marian Gaborik trade. He ended the season with two goals and seven points in 44 games but hopes to regain his game with Toronto.
Tue, Jul 1, 2014 01:32:00 PM

The Columbus Blue Jackets have until 5 pm on Monday to decide whether or not to offer restricted free agent Matt Frattin a contract or allow him to become an unrestricted free agent.

Frattin bounced around this past season as the Maple Leafs traded him to the Kings for Jonathan Bernier during the 2013 off-season while the Kings sent him to Columbus at the trade deadline as part of the Marian Gaborik trade. He was a huge disappointment with only two goals and five assists in 44 games in 2013-14. Do not be surprised if he is allowed to hit free agency tomorrow.
