The Maple Leafs recalled Gravel from AHL Toronto on Monday.
Gravel is heading up while 19-year-old Rasmus Sandin is on his way to the minors. Gravel has 13 points in 106 NHL games, so he won't have a major fantasy impact. In fact, he may not even draw into the lineup, and he'll top out as a bottom-pairing player if he does.
Gravel was designated for waivers for the purpose of reassignment to the minors Monday.
Gravel lost out on a spot in the lineup due to the emergence of youngsters Martin Marincin and Rasmus Sandin. The 26-year-old played in 36 games for the Oilers last season, in which he tallied three helpers while averaging 14:43 of ice time. An injury on the blue line could see Gravel make his way back into the 23-man roster.
