June 2022 – Acquired from the Maple Leafs in late March, Menell played 18 games in the AHL with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, recording six assists. Before the trade, Menell played 20 games with the Marlies, posting one goal and four assists. This offseason, Menell becomes a Group 6 unrestricted free agent. John Gove 

March 2022 – With a glut of depth defencemen in the organization, the Leafs traded Menell to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for future considerations. Nick Richard

October 2021 – Menell had a strong showing in the preseason for the Leafs but was ultimately unable to wrestle away an NHL job. He has cleared waivers and been assigned to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL. He is likely to be the Marlies’ primary offensive option on the blue line this season and could find himself in the Leafs’ lineup if injuries occur at the NHL level. Nick Richard

August 2021 – The Maple Leafs signed Menell to a one-year, two-way contract that carries an NHL salary of $750k. He is expected to compete for a depth role in training camp this fall. Nick Richard<
