Maple Leafs door remains open for Andersen to come back and play, Dubas says

Kyle Dubas’ faith in Frederik Andersen hasn’t waned. In fact, the Maple Leafs general manager expects Andersen to be back in uniform at some point this season. Andersen, dealing with a lower-body injury, has not been on the ice since March 19, when he was in goal for a loss against the Calgary Flames. “I’m convinced that Freddie is...

Monday’s FTB: Kyle Dubas went Super Saiyan, what’s the next trade?

Photo by Julian Avram/Icon Sportswire via Two trades on a Sunday. Will there be more? Kyle Dubas woke up on Sunday morning and chose violence. We’ve all had Leafs PR Twitter notifications turned on for weeks and have been extremely frustrated to see them respond to taxi squad paper transactions. But that couldn’t be said yesterday. The Leafs pointed at a finger at the entire NHL and screamed, “We’re going for it!” and like always, it started with Brandon Pridham and his salary cap knowledge. Frederik Andersen hasn’t been in the Leafs’ net since March...

Rittich trade clouds Leafs plan for Andersen

Another goaltender has come to the crowded Toronto crease as the trade deadline nears, boosting playoff depth, but dimming the picture for Frederik Andersen. Though the Maple Leafs have dodged the question of whether the injured Andersen comes back this season, they acquired Calgary Flames backup David Rittich late Sunday for a third-round pick next year. Calgary will also pick up 50% of Rittich’s salary. ...

Maple Leafs acquire goaltender David Rittich from Flames for third-round pick

Calgary will retain 50 per cent of Rittich’s contract in a move that gives the Leafs some depth behind Jack Campbell, with fellow goaltender Frederik Andersen’s injury status up in the air.

Maple Leafs cap space post Riley Nash trade

Maple Leafs cap space post Riley Nash trade

Richard Lautens/Toronto Star via Half of the picture is clear. The rest is like watching a game in reverse retro jerseys. Yesterday, the Leafs traded for Riley Nash, a Columbus forward who is currently injured, but expected to return to playing form in four to six weeks. His contract pays him $2.75 million this year, and he is an expiring UFA. That was the easy part. The hard part is trying to figure out the salary cap implications of this move. Yesterday, it was revealed that the Leafs had placed Frederik Andersen on LTIR, retroactive (we assume) to when he last...

Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe says he has “no concern” that goaltender Frederik Andersen’s current injury will end his season. The post NHL appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.

SIMMONS: Dubas plays the trade waiting game and historically that's not his style

There are five days to go until the NHL trade deadline and Kyle Dubas will not alter his approach as everything around the league grows more confusing. He wants another forward of consequence, probably a left-winger. He wants a depth defenceman, someone who can push Travis Dermott. He may, depending on the little known circumstances of Frederik Andersen, want some goaltending depth as well. And the clock is...

Friday’s FTB: Frederik Andersen is “progressing well”

Photo by Mark Blinch/NHLI via This is good? Probably? Sheldon Keefe provided an update to Frederik Andersen’s condition yesterday, which went exactly as all injury updates do: [Player X] is [lingering somewhere in the twilight space between life and death] and more information is expected [between now and the heat death of the universe]. In more concrete news, Keefe has confirmed that Andersen will not be joining the Maple Leafs on this road trip, which is not exactly a surprise. Sheldon Keefe says Frederik Andersen will not join the team on this trip, which...

Dave Feschuk: The Maple Leafs need another goalie by the trade deadline if they’re serious about the Stanley Cup

Frederik Andersen, Jack Campbell and Michael Hutchinson don’t have the track record a true contender needs for the post-season. Sometimes a long-shot goalie delivers, but the realists among us would prefer not to bet on Hollywood endings, Dave Feschuk writes.

Leafs netminder Andersen not out long-term, but won't join team out west

Frederik Andersen won’t be a long-term injury issue for the Maple Leafs, but neither is he rejoining them for the final three games on their western road trip. And with Jack Campbell able to practise on Thursday afternoon in Winnipeg, right after his seventh consecutive win there on Wednesday night, there’s no rush. Coach Sheldon Keefe said Andersen’s follow-up medical appointment on Thursday in Toronto...

Toronto Maple Leafs: Potential Goalie Upgrades at Deadline

The Toronto Maple Leafs closed out their two-game set against the surging Oilers with a 3-2 overtime loss Monday night, and are probably content taking three of four points,  considering they had to use a goalie who was supposed to be their fourth-stringer this season. With Frederik Andersen already on the shelf and Jack Campbell not at […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Potential Goalie Upgrades at Deadline - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Campbell back in Maple Leafs net against Jets as Andersen undergoes further evaluation

At times, Sheldon Keefe acknowledged he has to fight the feeling that he’s walking a tightrope. The subject is the Maple Leafs’ goaltending and specifically the injury woes that have impacted the hockey lives of Frederik Andersen and Jack Campbell this season. There’s not much of a safety net for the Leafs beyond the two, certainly not if both would arrive at a point where they’re out for the long...

Injured goalies cloud Maple Leafs' future

Deciding on the starting goaltender for the Maple Leafs now seems dependent on a note from the doctor. That isn’t the way to manage so vital a position, but on-going injuries to Jack Campbell and Frederik Andersen make every day a waiting room game. Before the Leafs flew to Winnipeg on Tuesday, a travel day with no practice or official updates, coach Sheldon Keefe was reasonably sure that taking 72 hours...

Maple Leafs lose 3-2 in overtime to Edmonton Oilers, win season series

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports The final battle was lost, but the war was easily won. Have you ever missed a couple episodes of a TV show and then you come back completely confused about what’s going on and who’s this new guy and what’s the plot about now? I have been AWOL with the Maple Leafs the past few weeks, and I come back and Michael Hutchinson and some other guy are in net? Is Frederik Andersen still injured? Did Jack Campbell get traded? Alex Galchenyuk is a top six forward? What the what? As I catchup on who’s playing what tonight the Leafs and Oilers...

Hutchinson gets start for Leafs vs. Oilers as Campbell not 100%

Michael Hutchinson, who was pulled after two early goals in his last start, will have to redeem himself against the two leading scorers in the NHL on Monday night. Out of an abundance of caution, Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe announced that Jack Campbell (6-0-0) will rest while, No. 3 Hutchinson (Frederik Andersen is hurt) will get the call in the ninth and final meeting against Connor...
