    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Activated, sent to AHL

    Sparks (leg) was activated off injured reserve and sent to AHL Toronto on Monday, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports. Sparks appears to have finally returned to health, but with James Reimer and Jonathan Bernier both healthy in front of him as well, there's no room for the 22-year-old netminder. As a result, he will return to AHL Toronto again, where he should receive more consistent playing time between the pipes.

    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Will miss extended period of time

    Sparks (lower body) is expected to miss an extended period of time due to the injury he suffered in Thursday's game against the Sharks. There didn't appear to be any sort of collision at the net to cause such an injury, but coach Mike Babcock confirmed after Thursday's outing that Sparks will be out long-term. A concrete timetable for a return has yet to be established, but he'll for sure miss Saturday's matchup with the Kings. Jonathan Bernier should be in goal for that outing.

    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Starting Thursday

    Sparks will be in between the pipes for Thursday's matchup with San Jose, Jonas Siegel of TSN reports. Things didn't go to plan in Jonathan Bernier's return from his conditioning assignment, as he allowed five goals in an overtime loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. This lead head coach Mike Babcock to state, "the puck's going in so Sparks will start." It seems as though Babcock's patience has run incredibly thin in regards to Bernier, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Sparks and his 3-1-0 record continue to receive starts.

    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Garners first-star honors in victory

    Sparks was named the game's first star Tuesday after stopping 25 of 27 shots through 65 minutes, then saving four of the Devils' five shootout attempts to deliver a 3-2 win. Aside from that six-goal hiccup against Winnipeg in his second career start, Sparks has been unimpeachable in the Toronto net. James Reimer (undisclosed) should be ready to go for the Leafs' next game -- which is next Tuesday, a full week away -- but the 22-year-old Sparks is making a serious impression as he tries to establish himself as the Leafs' future in net.

    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: To be sent between pipes Tuesday

    Sparks will start in net Tuesday night against the Devils, James Mirtle at The Globe and Mail reports. Sparks continues to see playing time with James Reimer out with an undisclosed injury and Jonathan Bernier down in the minors on a conditioning assignment.

    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Gets second win with 27 saves in St. Louis

    Sparks made 27 saves Saturday in a 4-1 win over St. Louis. He got over a bit of a floppy start to brick up the twine tent in just his third NHL start. The kid looks to get the starts until James Reimer returns. We're not sure how long that will last, but Sparks might help you through an injury.

    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Set for third NHL start Saturday

    Sparks will start in the crease again Saturday, facing shots from the Blues on the road, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports. Sparks worked a shutout against the Oilers on Nov. 30 for his first NHL start, but was sent back to Earth two days later, yielding six goals on 35 shots from the Jets. He's getting time between the pipes with Jonathan Bernier on a conditioning assignment in the minors and starter James Reimer reportedly day-to-day with an undisclosed ailment. It's anyone's guess if Sparks will fly against the Blues, but it's worth noting that the 6-foot-3, 205-pound backstop has crafted a 1.90 GAA and .938 save percentage in 11 games with AHL Toronto this season, suggesting that he can at least handle minor-league competition at this juncture.

    Maple Leafs' Garret Sparks: Makes 29 saves in loss to Jets

    Sparks made 29 saves in a 6-1 loss to the Jets on Wednesday night. The world was fine through two periods -- the score was just 2-1. But things fell apart quickly in the third when the Jets pumped in two goals by the 2:43 mark. Sparks has already lived the highs and lows of the NHL, but that's already better than Jonathan Bernier's season so far. Sparks will be James Reimer's back-up for the next 10 days while Jonathan Bernier is on his AHL conditioning stint. But he clearly needs some continued growth in his game.
