Frederik Andersen will be Toronto's starter on Wednesday.

The real question is who will be Andersen's understudy in that game. Toronto has put Jhonas Enroth on waivers and regardless of if he gets claimed or cleared, he probably won't be on the Leafs' roster by Wednesday's contest.
Dec 5 - 12:37 PM

Jhonas Enroth has been placed on waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Enroth was brought in by Toronto to serve as the team's backup goaltender, but he's been used sparingly and hasn't been effective on the rare occasions that he has played. He has a 3.94 GAA and .872 save percentage in six games this season with only four of those being starts. Though Karri Ramo remains unsigned, he has practiced with the Maple Leafs and this Enroth decision is likely a signal that Ramo will become Toronto's new backup goaltender.

James van Riemsdyk's goal on Saturday was his 100th as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

van Riemsdyk is the 55th player to score at least 100 goals in a Leafs jersey. Over his career he has 147 goals and 297 points in 470 contests between his time with Toronto and Philadelphia. "That’s a pretty big honor," said van Riemsdyk of his 100th Leafs goal. "I have really enjoyed playing in Toronto and that (milestone) shows I’ve been playing here a few years now. Hopefully, I can play here a lot longer."

Garret Sparks has returned to the AHL Toronto Marlies.

Sparks was suspended after he was caught using violent and sexist language at another user on Facebook, to say the least. "I should know the difference between what I can and can’t say," Sparks said. "It’s just holding myself to a higher standard of professionalism." Hopefully this incident will prove to merely a random blip and not a sign of underlying issues.

After a brief summons to the big club, Antoine Bibeau is on his way back to the AHL.

Not that he has to go very far. The 22-year-old netminder has posted a 6-5-3 record with a .907 save percentage and a 2.53 GAA with AHL Toronto.

Matt Martin and Erik Gudbranson dropped their gloves Saturday night to settle a score from November 5th.

It was inevitable that Martin and Gudbranson would tussle after the two had harsh words following an incident in a November 5th game in which Martin went after Canucks' rookie defenseman Troy Stecher. For his part, Martin seems to think the subjec is closed and had the following to say about Gudbranson after Saturday night's fight. "I have a lot of respect for him ... He wears his heart on his sleeve. He's a guy I'd have in my corner any day."

Auston Matthews tied Saturday's game versus the Vancouver Canucks at the 1:56 mark of the third period before eventually losing in a shootout by a score of 3-2.

This was Matthews’ 11th goal of the season. Notably, the other scorer for the Leafs also recorded his 11th when James van Riemsdyk sunk a puck at the 11:30 mark of the second. The two shooters are tied at the top of the Leafs' leaderboard in terms of goals.

Frederik Andersen gave up two shootout goals Saturday night as the Toronto Maple Leafs lost 3-2 to the Vancouver Canucks.

In victory and loss, Andersen has been respectable recently. He stopped 22 of 24 shots during regulation and overtime on Saturday. This was the ninth consecutive game that he broke the .900 mark with a best of .943 last Saturday night in a 4-2 win over the Washington Capitals.
Dec 3 - 10:27 PM

The Maple Leafs will scratch Connor Carrick against the Canucks on Saturday.

Through 21 games this season the young defender has posted just three points with 21 hits, 24 PIMs and 26 blocks.
Dec 3 - 4:48 PM

The Maple Leafs have summoned Antoine Bibeau on an emergency basis.

With Frederik Andersen still slated to start, it appears that there's a problem with Jhonas Enroth. Be that as it may, the 22-year-old netminder has posted a 6-5-3 record with a .907 save percentage and a 2.53 GAA with AHL Toronto.
Dec 3 - 4:17 PM

Matt Martin isn't concerned about the threats that were made the last time the Canucks and Maple Leafs squared off.

The two teams will face-off in Vancouver tonight. The last time they played, Martin dropped the gloves with the inexperienced Troy Stecher. Erik Gudbranson, who was tossed in that game, said that Martin was "dead" the next time they met. "I’d say both teams got caught up in the emotions of that game," Martin said Friday. "It’s sports, it’s hockey. After the games are done, you try to let them go as fast as possible. But people will hype this game up, it’s going to be talked about. It’s going to run its course (on Saturday), but we’re focused on winning and making this a successful road trip. Games get emotional sometimes and that was the most emotional game for us this season."

Martin Marincin might be back in Toronto's lineup on Saturday night in Vancouver.

The 24-year-old has played in just one of his team's last seven games (he's served as a healthy scratch in the rest). Either way, he won't have any fantasy value this season.

The Maple Leafs will have Frederik Andersen in net against the Canucks on Saturday.

After an October to forget, Andersen posted one of the best November's in the league. He went 8-4 with a .931 save percentage and a 2.45 GAA. He's also already shutout the Canucks this season (on 26 shots), so we could be in for another sterling event.
Dec 2 - 6:42 PM

Nazem Kadri isn't worried about the hostile environment that awaits him in Saturday's game against Vancouver.

"There is definitely going to be some hostility, but we definitely play better under that kind of pressure," Kadri said. "Especially myself. I don't mind it at all. You have to be hard on good players." The Leafs center incited plenty of shenanigans on Nov. 5 when Toronto last played the Canucks following his blindside hit on Daniel Sedin. Kadri does step over the line at times, but he has enjoyed a strong start to the year with 10 goals and 17 points in 23 games. He also has 53 penalty minutes.

A ruling on Jared Cowen's grievance hearing is due by Dec. 7.

If Cowen wins then he will get his $4.5 million salary, but if he loses then he will receive $750,000 this year and $750,000 next year as part of the buyout. In that situation, the Leafs would go from getting a $650,000 credit to taking a $3.5 million cap hit.
