Out of the lineup tonight, Leafs rookie defenceman Travis Dermott has been a welcome addition to the Leafs roster. Playing in each of the Leafs last two games, Dermott began his first game with just 12:03 of ice time before being bumped up to 16:21 the next night.

Dermott’s been replaced by Connor Carrick, and with Nikita Zaitsev still out from injury, Dermott, Carrick, and Andreas Borgman seem to be stuck in the rotational fold… for now.
The real question is, what do you do with Travis moving forward? Keep him up with the big squad? Say “hey, this was nice, but really we’d like you in the AHL? Use him exclusively on the right side of the ice to try to develop that side of his game? Argue relentlessly about him online?
