REPORT: Possible DEVASTATING news for Toronto Maple Leafs

Published October 15, 2022 at 4:28 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs went into this past offseason looking to address a need which was goaltending after the team let fan favourite Jack Campbell walk away in free agency.

So the team traded with Ontario rival, the Ottawa Senators to get former two-time Stanley Cup Champion, Matt Murray, and also signed Washington Capitals cast-off Ilya Samsonov to a one year deal.

Both goaltenders have played in one game each so far to start the season, Murray losing to the Montreal Canadiens, and Samsonov beating his former team the Washington Capitals.

While Matt Murray is the 'starter' it looks like Samsonov might be stealing the net for some time as today Matt Murray left practice with an injury.

The Maple Leafs host Murray's former team tonight the Ottawa Senators, and Murray was projected to be the starter, but it does not appear that he will be able to play.

What makes matters worse for the Maple Leafs as well is due to salary cap and contracts, they may not even have a backup goalie for tonights game
