2 years agoToronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen did not play on Thursday night against the Buffalo Sabres after leaving halfway through the Leafs match against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday with an upper-body injury. Toronto head coach Mike Babcock seemed to downplay their goaltender’s condition, stating that Andersen wouldn’t have played in back-to-back matches anyway. “I don’t think there’s much going on there,” Babcock said of Andersen’s injury. With the virtual certainty of the Leafs earning a playoff spot this season, barring a momentous collapse, it is entirely possible that Andersen’s absence is solely a precaution to keep him healthy for the playoffs. That being said, it is likely that Toronto’s No. 2 goaltender, Curtis McElhinney, will see more starts through the regular season to rest Andersen as much as possible before the postseason. It may be worth looking at other goaltending options if Andersen is currently on your roster, especially if this current injury holds him out of the lineup for more than a couple of games.--Alex McKenzie
