Calvin Pickard is getting the call.

The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled the 25-year-old netminder from the AHL's Marlies after backup Curtis McElhinney was sidelined with a lower-body injury.

The Maple Leafs acquired Pickard from the Vegas Golden Knights in October, but he's yet to suit up for the big club. He's posted a 10-5-0 record and .919 save percentage through 15 games with the Marlies this season.

Pickard was claimed by the Golden Knights in the expansion draft but was dealt before he appeared in a regular-season game for Vegas. He registered 15 wins and a .904 save rate with the Colorado Avalanche last year.
