The Maple Leafs reassigned Kaskisuo to AHL Toronto on Thursday, per CapFriendly.
Kaskisuo was brought up to provide depth because Frederik Andersen (neck) is on the mend, but the Leafs acquired Jack Campbell via trade from the Kings on Wednesday. The 26-year-old Kaskisuo will head back to the minors for now, but there's a chance he's brought back up for Friday's game versus the Ducks if Campbell isn't ready in time.
The Maple Leafs recalled Kaskisuo from AHL Toronto on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old will provide the Maple Leafs with some extra depth in goal, at least in the short term after Frederik Andersen exited Monday's loss to the Panthers with an upper-body injury. Expect Kaskisuo to see limited work as the backup to Michael Hutchinson until Andersen is back to full strength.
The Maple Leafs assigned Kaskisuo to AHL Toronto on Monday.
Kaskisuo made his first NHL start and was lit up to the tune of six goals on 38 shots by the Penguins. Since then, he's stayed on the bench, and the Maple Leafs opted to call up Michael Hutchinson to serve as Frederik Andersen's backup. Kaskisuo, 26, will continue to develop his game in the AHL ranks.
Kaskisuo made 32 saves in a 6-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday. It was his NHL debut.
Poor kid. He's been playing well in the AHL, but he lined up behind a shell-shocked Leafs' lineup and they did nothing to help him. Koskisuo is better than the stat line shows, but given how the Leafs use their backup, we can't recommend him.
Kaskisuo will start in Saturday's road game versus the Penguins, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Kaskisuo was called up to the parent club Tuesday after Michael Hutchinson cleared waivers. The Finnish netminder won't have to wait long for his first turn in the crease. Kaskisuo has a 2.13 GAA and a .928 save percentage in eight games for AHL Toronto this year. He'll look to bring some stability to the backup position behind starting netminder Frederik Andersen.
The Maple Leafs recalled Kaskisuo from their AHL affiliate Tuesday.
Toronto waived Michael Hutchinson following a string of poor performances Monday, so Kaskisuo will take over as Frederik Andersen's backup for the foreseeable future. The 26-year-old Finn has played well in the minors this season, maintaining a 2.13 GAA and .928 save percentage through eight appearances.
The Maple Leafs assigned Kaskisuo to AHL Toronto on Saturday.
This could be a sign that Frederik Andersen (illness) will return for Monday's game versus the Avalanche, especially since AHL Toronto doesn't have a game until Jan. 19. Kaskisuo still hasn't appeared in a game for the Maple Leafs this season since Michael Hutchinson has been coach Mike Babcock's first option during Andersen's injuries.
Kaskisuo was called up from AHL Toronto under emergency conditions Saturday.
Frederik Andersen reportedly had a chance to return from a groin injury Saturday against the Bruins, but now he's bogged down by the flu, so Kaskisuo once again heads back to the top level. The Finn hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2015-16, therefore it would be rather brazen of Leafs coach Mike Babcock to play Kaskisuo over Michael Hutchinson while Andersen is out. For what it's worth, we expect Hutchinson to work between the pipes against the B's, but we'll circle back if that changes.
Kaskisuo was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Friday.
Kaskisuo has been at the end of the organization's yo-yo string, moving to the NHL and back on several occasions, though he has yet to make his debut at the top level. At this juncture, his status depends solely on the health of Frederik Andersen (groin), who is holding out hope that he'll be able to return Saturday.
Kaskisuo, as expected, was recalled from AHL Toronto on Thursday.
Kaskisuo will fill in as the backup behind Michael Hutchinson versus New Jersey on Thursday while Garret Sparks (concussion) and Frederik Andersen (groin) remain sidelined. In order to preserve cap space, Kaskisuo will almost certainly be headed back down to the minors following Thursday's tilt. If Andersen is healthy enough to serve as the No. 2 against Boston on Saturday, this could mark the last of Kaskisuo's time in the NHL this season.
Kaskisuo was sent down to AHL Toronto on Tuesday.
Due to cap constraints, the Leafs can't simply keep Kaskisuo in the NHL, which means his demotion isn't an indication as to whether Frederik Andersen (groin) or Garret Sparks (concussion) will be available versus the Devils on Thursday. If neither guy can give it a go, Kaskisuo will be brought in to backup Michael Hutchinson.
Kaskisuo was recalled from AHL Toronto under emergency conditions Monday.
The move to bring in Kaskisuo raises doubts regarding the availability of Frederik Anderson (groin) or Garret Sparks (concussion) to serve as the backup to Michael Hutchinson versus the Predators on Monday. With the Maple Leafs hard up against the cap, Kaskisuo will likely be shipped back down Tuesday.
The Maple Leafs reassigned Kaskisuo to AHL Toronto on Sunday.
Kaskisuo worked in a backup role behind Michael Hutchinson on Saturday versus the Canucks. The 25-year-old may be heading back to minors since Frederick Andersen (groin) is nearing a return, but it's equally possible that the Maple Leafs just want Kaskisuo to get some game action -- AHL Toronto plays Bridgeport on Sunday -- before being recalled again for Monday's game versus the Predators.
The Maple Leafs recalled Kaskisuo from AHL Toronto on Saturday.
Kaskisuo will be back up with the Maple Leafs on an emergency basis with Garret Sparks (concussion) unavailable and Frederik Andersen (groin) not ready to return from injured reserve. He'll step in as the backup goaltender in Saturday's game against the Canucks, as Michael Hutchinson has already been named the starter for that match.
The Maple Leafs assigned Kaskisuo to AHL Toronto on Friday, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.
Kaskisuo's demotion indicates Frederik Andersen (groin) will almost certainly be activated off injured reserve ahead of Saturday's matchup with Vancouver. The 25-year-old netminder will remain in the minors for the foreseeable future.
Kaskisuo was recalled from the AHL with Garret Sparks (concussion) and Frederik Andersen (groin) injured, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Michael Hutchinson was also recalled from the AHL and is likely to start Thursday against Minnesota with Kaskisuo as a his backup. Both could get some work in the short term if Sparks and Andersen remain sidelined.
Kaskisuo was demoted to AHL Toronto on Saturday.
Kaskisuo was sent down following Saturday's game and likely won't be coming back up any time soon after the Leafs acquired Michael Hutchinson from the Panthers. The 25-year-old Kaskisuo is 3-5-0 with a 4.12 GAA in his 11 appearances with the Marlies and will need to play significantly better if he wants to earn another call-up.
The Maple Leafs recalled Kaskisuo on an emergency basis Saturday.
Kaskisuo should provide some depth in the crease Saturday after it was revealed that Frederik Andersen is dealing with a groin issue that leaves him day-to-day. Garret Sparks received the starting nod Friday, so there's an outside chance Kaskisuo will make his NHL debut Saturday.
Kaskisuo signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
Kaskisuo spent the majority of the 2017-18 campaign with AHL Chicago, compiling a 13-13-0 record while posting a .914 save percentage and a 2.38 GAA in 28 appearances. The 24-year-old Finland native will likely be in AHL Toronto's goaltender rotation next season.
