It’s no secret the Toronto Maple Leafs have been dealing with some pretty bad injury luck in their net.
The team has used three different goalies regularly, and now that Frederik Andersen does not seem to be coming back any time soon as the team placed him on LTIR, the Leafs went out and acquired a new goalie.
Sunday night the Toronto Maple Leafs announced that they have acquired David Rittich from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a 2022 third-round selection.
