Holl was playing a first game in the NHL. It was only a few hours before the match that he had the call to move Marlies to the big club.

He was in his National League debut at 26, after 239 minor league games.

Auston Matthews, Kasperi Kapanen and Mitch Marner were the other goalscorers of Mike Babcock, who is undefeated in his last three games.
