The Toronto Maple Leafs have sent centre Peter Holland to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.

According to multiple sources, the Leafs made the move after Holland split time with Jay McClement at fourth line centre during Saturday's practice. 

The 23-year-old missed the Leafs' final four games prior to the Olympic break with a severe case of lace bite.

In 31 games with the Leafs this season, Holland has five goals and five assists.

He was acquired earlier this season by the Leafs from the Anaheim Ducks.
