The Toronto Maple Leafs placed defenceman Martin Marincin on waivers and the Vegas Golden Knights did the same with goaltender Calvin Pickard. Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported the transactions Thursday. Marincin was a healthy scratch in Toronto’s season opener Wednesday against the Winnipeg Jets after Swedish rookie Andreas Borgman earned a spot in the top six on the Maple Leafs’ blue line. The 25-year-old Slovakian has spent the past two years with the Maple Leafs after being acquired in a trade with the Edmonton Oilers for forward Brad Ross and a fourth-round pick in June 2015. Marincin had one goal, six assists in 25 regular-season games a season ago and suited up for all six of Toronto’s playoff contests.
