Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Shifts to LTIR
Woll (ankle) was moved to long-term injured reserve Friday, per CapFriendly.
Woll hasn't dressed since Dec. 7 and his placement on LTIR won't change his return timeline. The 25-year-old is "not close" to returning but the team hasn't provided much more context on his status.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Won't return soon
Woll (ankle) is not expected back on the ice in the short term after coach Sheldon Keefe told reporters Monday the netminder was "not anywhere close" to playing, Luke Fox of Sportsnet reports.
Woll was expected back at practice coming out of the All-Star break, but it seems he isn't going to play any time soon. At this point, even once given the all-clear, Woll could struggle to get into the lineup with Ilya Samsonov and Martin Jones ahead of him on the depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Might practice after All-Star break
The hope is Woll (ankle) will resume practicing after the All-Star break, though his return to the lineup might not happen swiftly after that, coach Sheldon Keefe told Joshua Kloke of The Athletic on Wednesday.
Woll, who last played Dec. 7, has an 8-5-1 record, 2.80 GAA and .916 save percentage in 15 contests this season. Once he's ready to return, the 25-year-old should get a chance to serve as the Leafs' No. 1 goaltender. Ilya Samsonov, who has struggled this season but saved 16 of 17 shots against Seattle on Sunday, might serve as the backup goaltender once Woll returns, though Martin Jones, who has a 2.65 GAA and .911 save percentage across 17 outings, might also be in the mix....

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: With team on trip
Woll (ankle) is traveling with the Maple Leafs for the team's current four-game road trip, David Alter of SI.com reports.
Woll has been sidelined since Dec. 7 against the Senators due to a high-ankle sprain, but the fact he's now traveling with the team suggests he could be ready to return sooner rather than later. Ilya Samsonov has continued to struggle since being recalled from the minors Wednesday and the Maple Leafs probably don't want to rely on Martin Jones serving as their No. 1 option in goal on a long-term basis, so Woll could be in line for significant playing time once he's given the green light to return....

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Surfaces on injured reserve
Woll (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL media site.
Woll is listed as week-to-week after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Thursday's 4-3 win over Ottawa.

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Out week-to-week
The Maple Leafs report Woll will be out of action week-to-week with a high-ankle sprain.
Woll was injured Thursday versus the Senators and should be out at least 4-6 weeks, depending on the severity of the sprain. He had been Toronto's No. 1 goaltender, but that will now fall upon Ilya Samsonov's (illness) shoulders. Woll is 8-5-1 with a 2.80 GAA and .916 save percentage this season. Martin Jones is likely to back up Samsonov in the interim.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Will miss time
Woll (leg) will miss time, but the Maple Leafs won't know how much until he is evaluated in Toronto, Joshua Kloke of The Athletic reports.
Woll left Thursday's game versus the Senators with the injury, and it will seemingly cost him time. Look for Ilya Samsonov (illness) and Martin Jones to get playing time for the Maple Leafs until Woll is cleared to play again.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Exits Thursday's start
Woll left Thursday's game versus the Senators with an apparent left leg injury, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Woll needed help off the ice after making a save in the third period. He left the game with a 3-2 lead after making 29 saves on 31 shots. Woll has been a stabilizing force for the Maple Leafs' goaltending -- if he misses time, Ilya Samsonov (illness) and Martin Jones will likely be the netminders seeing time during his absence....

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Slated to start Thursday
Woll is expected to start on the road against Ottawa on Thursday, per Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun.
Woll has an 8-5-1 record, 2.82 GAA and .915 save percentage in 14 appearances this season.

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Falls short against Boston

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Facing Bruins
Woll will patrol the home net versus Boston on Saturday, according to David Alter of Sports Illustrated.
Woll has been sharp in his last two games, giving up only four goals on 79 shots in a pair shootout victories. He has taken over as the Maple Leafs' No. 1 netminder and is 8-5-0 with a 2.74 GAA and .917 save percentage.

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Snatches shootout win
Woll made 37 stops in a 4-3 shootout win over Seattle on Thursday.
Woll was especially good in overtime and saved the game with 36 seconds left when he stoned Jordan Eberle on a point-blank shot. And Woll turned away every shooter in the shootout. Woll has started three straight games (2-1-0), and he's put up a 5-2-0 record in seven starts since Nov. 6. With Ilya Samsonov continuing to play mediocre hockey, Woll should get plenty of opportunity to continue to tighten his hold on the No. 1 role. However, it's important to remember that Woll has never started more than 37 games in a season and that was in college (2018-19). And with an injury-plagued pro history since then, the quiet netminder could be protected by the team so he can develop into the young star he appears to be becoming.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Tending twine Thursday
Woll will be between the home pipes versus Seattle on Thursday, according to Mark Masters of TSN.
Woll was outstanding Tuesday, turning aside 38 shots in a 2-1 shootout win over Florida. Woll is 7-5-0 with a 2.74 GAA and .916 save percentage this season. The Kraken are 26th in NHL scoring this season, a far cry from last season when they were fourth overall.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Sharp in shootout win
Woll turned aside 38 shots in regulation and overtime and five of six shootout attempts in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Panthers.
Kevin Stenlund banged home a rebound late in the first period, but otherwise Woll shut down Florida's attack en route to his seventh win of the season. The 25-year-old netminder has had an erratic November, posting a 3.32 GAA and .899 save percentage over seven appearances, but Ilya Samsonov hasn't yet done enough to push his way back into the No. 1 role for Toronto....

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: In net against Florida
Per Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun, Woll was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, putting him in line to guard the home goal versus the Panthers on Tuesday.
Woll was solid in his last start Friday against the Penguins, stopping 32 of 35 shots, but he still came away with a loss due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. He'll try to return to the win column in a home matchup with a Florida team that's averaging just 2.82 goals per game on the road this campaign, 25th in the NHL.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Solid, but takes loss
Woll made 32 saves in a 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Saturday was solid, not spectacular. The Leafs were up 2-1 by the 7:48 mark of the first, but the Pens chipped away at Woll and the Leafs. Former Leaf Noel Acciari tied things up at the mid-point of the second when he shot from a sharp angle off Woll's right shoulder and the puck went up under the crossbar. And Erik Karlsson sniped the winner on a one-timer with just 28 seconds left in the second. The young netminder hasn't exactly been consistent, but he has impressed at times.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Starting Saturday in Pittsburgh

Woll is 6-4-0 this campaign, with a 2.90 GAA and .909 save percentage. The Penguins are 16th in NHL scoring, averaging 3.15 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Hangs on for OT win
Woll made 33 saves on 36 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Wild.
The Maple Leafs held a 3-1 lead early in the third period, but heavy traffic in front of Woll led to two Minnesota goals in 2:32 to tie the game up, as Toronto was out-shot 24-9 over the final two frames. The netminder never allowed a go-ahead tally though, and William Nylander scored in overtime to pull the win out of the fire. Woll has won three of his last four appearances, and on the season he's 6-4-0 with a 2.90 GAA and a .909 save percentage. With Ilya Samsonov's play improving in November however, Woll may be losing his grip on the No. 1 job.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Starting against Wild
Woll will man the crease against Minnesota on Sunday in Sweden, according to David Alter of Sports Illustrated.
