Frederik Andersen's upper-body injury isn't believed to be a long-term issue.

Andersen left Saturday's game as a result of the injury. He participated in part of Monday's practice, which is a good sign. That being said, Curtis McElhinney has already been named as the starter for Tuesday's contest.

Curtis McElhinney will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

McElhinney has a 2.61 GAA and .921 save percentage in 17 games. Leafs starting goaltender Frederik Andersen sustained an upper-body injury on Saturday, but he might not be out for long as he participated in part of Monday's practice.
Mar 27 - 12:21 PM

Frederik Andersen (upper body) participated in about 20 minutes of Toronto's Monday practice.

Andersen was also on the ice with the goalie coach prior to the Leafs' morning skate. He left Saturday's game due to the injury and the Leafs have taken the step of summoning goaltender Garret Sparks from the minors.
Mar 27 - 11:31 AM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled goalie Garret Sparks from the AHL.

Frederik Andersen left Saturday's game with an injury, so the Leafs need another goalie on their roster. Andersen was able to skate with his team's goalie coach this morning, but we still don't know how long he'll be out. Sparks has an 18-7-0 record with a 2.08 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage this season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled Kasperi Kapanen from the minors on Monday.

The 20-year-old has 18 goals and 43 points in 43 AHL games this season, but he's yet to play a game in the NHL in 2016-17. He had no points in nine contests with the Leafs last season.

Frederik Andersen (upper body) is on the ice with the Leafs' goalie coach Monday morning.

We'll have to wait for further information on Andersen, but this is a positive sign. He left Saturday's game in the first period due to the injury.
Mar 27 - 10:26 AM

Auston Matthews has tied Wendel Clark's team rookie goal-scoring record.

Matthews scored his 34th goal of the season Saturday night against Buffalo. It ties Clark for the most by a Maple Leaf in his rookie campaign. Matthews will have eight opportunities to surpass Clark's total before the end of the regular season.
Mar 26 - 11:42 AM

The Maple Leafs will re-evaluate Frederik Andersen's status Sunday.

The Maple Leaf goalie left Saturday night's game after the first period with an upper-body injury will see Toronto team doctors Sunday. Hopefully they will provide some type of medical update, but something may not be announced until Monday when the Leafs return to practice.
Mar 26 - 11:38 AM

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

Auston Matthews scored at the 2:22 mark of the second period as the Maple Leafs lost a 5-2 contest to the Sabres.

Matthews is currently on a five-game streak in which he has scored at least one point. This is his third goal and sixth point during that span. It also allowed him to pad his team point lead over Mitch Marner and William Nylander with a margin of 61 to 57.
Mar 25 - 11:50 PM

Frederik Andersen left Saturday's game against Buffalo after the first period because of an upper-body injury.

The Leafs have already announced that he won't return. Curtis McElhinney is in the game in relief. This could be a devastating blow to Toronto's playoff hopes if Andersen's injury turns out to be a long-term issue.
Mar 25 - 8:40 PM

Frederik Andersen is expected to start on Saturday.

Andersen got a rare game off on Thursday. He has a 30-15-14 record, 2.64 GAA, and .919 save percentage in 60 games this season.
Mar 25 - 3:15 PM

Josh Leivo isn't available on Saturday due to an undisclosed injury.

Leivo has two goals and 10 points in 13 games this season. With him out, Ben Smith is expected to draw into the lineup.
Mar 25 - 12:16 PM

Josh Leivo has put up 10 points in 13 games this season.

Despite the fact that he's producing points, he still can't get into the lineup regularly. "We don’t have enough penalty killers, so he gets hosed," head coach Mike Babcock said. "I talk to him a lot about that. What I like about him is he brings it every day, he has a positive attitude and he has not let the adversity wear him down and feel sorry for himself."
