Curtis McElhinney stopped 30 of 33 shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings.
It's a victory for McElhinney in his first appearance of the 2017-18 regular season. The Leafs gave their backup goalie plenty of early run-support, as they went into the first intermission with a 4-1 lead and they never looked back. McElhinney doesn't have much, if any, fantasy value behind Frederik Andersen, but he can be used occasionally in spot starts. Oct 18 - 10:48 PM

Curtis McElhinney is expected to get the start in Wednesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

This would be his first appearance of the 2017-18 season. McElhinney had a 6-7-0 record with a 2.85 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage last season. He's nothing more than a backup goalie, so he won't have any fantasy value going forward.

Curtis McElhinney turned aside all 14 shots he faced in Friday's 3-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

McElhinney was between the pipes for the first two periods. He was replaced in the third frame by Garret Sparks. McElhinney is currently the favorite to land the backup job behind Frederik Andersen. He will not have any fantasy value this year or any other year going forward.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have re-signed Curtis McElhinney to a two-year contract extension worth a total of $1.7 million.

The veteran backup goalie finished the season with an 8-8-2 record, a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage in 2016-17. Don't expect him to carry any fantasy value going into next season. He'll serve as nothing more than Frederik Andersen's backup.

Apr 8 - 9:58 PM

Curtis McElhinney allowed four goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Apr 3 - 8:16 PM

Curtis McElhinney stopped 25 of 27 shots in a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Curtis McElhinney's best save of the night came when he reached back and took the puck right off the goal line to rob Reilly Smith of a sure goal in tight. McElhinney will be forced into a bit more action with Frederik Andersen sidelined with an upper-body injury but he played well in his first start since the injury to Andersen. The win improves his record to 7-6-2 on the year with a 2.57 goals against average and an impressive .921 save percentage.

Curtis McElhinney will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Mar 27 - 12:21 PM

Curtis McElhinney stepped into the net after Frederik Andersen suffered an upper body injury, but he did not provide sufficient relief as the Maple Leafs lost 5-2 to the Sabres.

McElhinney gave up three goals Saturday night on 22 shots after Andersen went 14 of 16. Both goalies had a nearly identical save percentage in the loss. McElhinney’s .864 was slightly worse than Andersen’s .875, but neither of them will be bragging about the performance.
Mar 26 - 12:06 AM

Toronto sits in third place in the Atlantic Division (three points ahead of Boston). McElhinney has a 6-5-2 record with a 2.52 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage this season.
Mar 23 - 10:45 PM
