Curtis McElhinney will be in goal for Toronto on Thursday night versus Buffalo.

McElhinney has gone 5-0-1 in his last six games, bringing his record to 8-4-1 with a 2.27 goals-against-average and .929 save percentage.

Curtis McElhinney allowed three goals on 31 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers.

The Leafs dug themselves a 2-0 hole in the second period, but they managed to tie the game up thanks to goals by Zach Hyman and Dominic Moore.

He has a 7-4-1 record with a 2.30 goals-against-average and a .929 save percentage this season. He has no fantasy value unless you are looking for very few spot starts.
Feb 27 - 10:47 PM

Curtis McElhinney will get the call Tuesday against the Florida Panthers.

Feb 18 - 10:37 PM

Curtis McElhinney will start Sunday's game against Detroit.

McElhinney will get the second half of Toronto's back-to-back situation after Frederik Andersen was in the cage for Saturday's 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

Feb 18 - 11:57 AM

He has a 6-4-0 record 2.27 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage this season. McElhinney's fantasy value will increase if Andersen is out for an extended period of time.
Feb 5 - 10:32 PM

Curtis McElhinney allowed one goal on 40 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars.

McElhinney's only blemish came on a one-timer from the slot by Stars forward Tyler Seguin in the second period. He played pretty well considering this was the first action he saw since Dec. 20. McElhinney has a 4-4-0 record with a 2.55 goals-against-average and a .925 save percentage this season. Obviously there's no fantasy value here.
Jan 25 - 11:41 PM

Curtis McElhinney will make the start Thursday night in Dallas, head coach Mike Babcock confirmed.

McElhinney will be making his first appearance since Dec. 20. He is 3-4 with a 2.78 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in his previous seven starts. The Toronto backup is not a recommended fantasy option against a Dallas team which is 21-8 in their past 29 home games, and 10-1 in their past 11 home games against teams with a winning road record while going 5-0 in their past five vs. Atlantic Division foes.
