Player Outlook

Curtis McElhinney is back as the Buds' backup after delivering a 6-7-0 record in 14 games for the team after he arrived off waivers in January 2017. He delivered a 2.85 GAA and .914 save percentage, and most importantly, he played strong enough hockey that the young team in front of him didn't have to change its style to compensate. McElhinney will likely see 20-25 games for the Leafs this season and may bring value off the wire in daily formats. Otherwise, he's not much of a fantasy consideration.

Player News
  • McElhinney signed a two-year contract extension with the Maple Leafs on Saturday, Kristen Shilton of TSN reports. Per Shilton, McElhinney's contract includes an average annual value (AAV) of $850,000. Toronto, evidently wanting to shore up its depth in goal, also procured a two-year deal with Garret Sparks -- who's a minor leaguer -- on the first day of the free-agency signing period. McElhinney spent parts of four seasons in Columbus before ending up with the Buds upon a waiver claim last January. He went 6-7-0 with a 2.85 GAA and .914 save percentage as a backup to Frederik Andersen.

  • McElhinney made 29 saves in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets. McElhinney filled in admirably for Frederik Andersen, who was rested after being forced out of Saturday's game after a nasty hit to the head. Andersen is apparently ready for Game 1 of the postseason, so McElhinney will be parked at the end of the bench for the foreseeable future.

  • McElhinney will defend the cage for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Blue Jackets, Dave McCarthy of NHL.com reports. McElhinney set aside 12 of the 14 shots he faced in relief of Frederik Andersen (head) during Saturday's game against the Penguins. With Andersen unavailable again Sunday, he will get the call for Sunday's regular-season finale as well. However, Andersen is expected to be healthy ahead of Game 1 of the playoffs, so McElhinney will likely be relegated to a backup role following Sunday's tilt.

  • McElhinney allowed two goals on 14 shots in Saturday's 5-3 win against the Penguins. McElhinney was forced into action early in the second period when Frederik Andersen (head) left due to injury. The backup made a key pad save on Sidney Crosby late in the third period, preserving the victory which put the Maple Leafs into the postseason for the first time in four seasons. If Andersen has a serious injury McElhinney might be pressed into duty for the playoffs. Stay tuned.

  • McElhinney allowed four goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss against the Capitals. The Leafs had some defensive breakdowns, and one of the goals McElhinney allowed was a laser on the power play. It won't get much easier, as Toronto's three remaining outings are against teams already in the playoffs or still in the hunt for a postseason spot. McElhinney is likely to see at least one more start with a back-to-back situation over the weekend to finish out the regular season.
