  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Returns to minors

    Kallgren was sent to the AHL on Wednesday.

    Kallgren's reassignment corresponds with Toronto activating Ilya Samsonov (knee) off the injured reserve list. Kallgren has a 3-2-4 record, 2.67 GAA and .898 save percentage in 10 contests with Toronto this season. He's likely to stay in the minors unless Samsonov or Matt Murray suffer another injury.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Downs flightless birds

    Kallgren made 25 saves in a 4-1 win over the Penguins on Saturday.

    The young goaltender played well. Rickard Rakell was the only Pens player to beat Kallgren when he wired a wrist shot near the right post at 11:38 of the third period. Since early November, Kallgren is 3-1-2 in six starts. Ilya Samsonov will be back in the Leafs' fold soon, so Kallgren will soon find himself back with the Marlies. Get ready to change course with your spot starters/backups.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Expected to start Saturday

    Kallgren will start on the road against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Mark Masters of reports.

    Kallgren is getting an opportunity to play because Matt Murray started in Toronto's 4-3 win over Minnesota on Friday and Ilya Samsonov is unavailable due to a knee injury. Kallgren is 2-2-4 with a 2.87 GAA and .891 save percentage in nine games this season. Pittsburgh has the sixth-ranked offense at 3.55 goals per game.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Suffers hard-luck loss

    Kallgren made 21 saves during Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    Kallgren started for the first time since Nov. 12 and waited 6:41 before executing his first save. With the way Monday's matchup opened, the Maple Leafs appeared poised to continue their recent dominance over the Islanders. The host team generated the first seven shots, but the Islanders recovered and Kallgren (2-2-4) ended up surrendering the game-winner to Anthony Beauvillier 1:56 into the extra stanza. The Maple Leafs dropped their first game to Islanders since Nov. 13, 2019, a span of five games.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Set to start Monday

    Kallgren is expected to be between the pipes at home versus the Islanders on Monday, Mark Masters of reports.

    Kallgren has watched from the bench for the Leafs' previous three contests after Matt Murray returned from injury. Prior to Murray's return, the 26-year-old Kallgren made four straight starts in which he posted a 2-1-1 record and 2.51 GAA. At this point, Kallgren shouldn't be expected to face a heavy workload, though a back-to-back Friday and Saturday against Minnesota and Pittsburgh, respectively, should provide Kallgren an opportunity to start again soon.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Back in win column

    Kallgren made 27 saves in a 3-2 win over Vancouver on Saturday.

    He wobbled in the first -- both Bo Horvat and J.T. Miller beat him by the 12:11 mark and the Leafs were down 2-0. But Kallgren buckled down and his teammates started the comeback. He preserved the 3-2 lead when he stopped Conor Garland on a breakaway with 3:10 left in the game. Kallgren improved to 2-2-3 with a 2.86 GAA and .893 save percentage, and he will continue to be the Leafs' top option until Matt Murray (groin) or Ilya Samsonov (knee) returns.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Between pipes Saturday

    Kallgren will get the home crease against Vancouver on Saturday, Mark Masters of reports,

    It will be back-to-back nights for Kallgren, who gave up three goals on 22 shots in a 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Friday. Kallgren is 1-2-3 this season with a 3.00 GAA and an .886 save percentage. He will take on the Canucks, who are 4-7-3 and have averaged 3.50 goals per game this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Suffers showcase game defeat

    Kallgren turned aside 19 of 22 shots during Friday's 4-2 loss to the visiting Penguins in the Hockey Hall of Fame Game.

    Kallgren, making his third straight start, faced a Penguins squad that entered Friday with one win in its previous eight outings. The Maple Leafs failed to match the Penguins' physicality -- they were outhit 41-14 -- and Kallgren (1-2-3) surrendered the game-winner on a screened wrist shot by Brock McGinn. Goalie Keith Petruzzelli could get the start against the Canucks on Saturday.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Set to start Friday

    Kallgren is expected to start at home against Pittsburgh on Friday, per David Alter of Sports Illustrated.

    Kallgren has a 1-1-3 record, 2.99 GAA, and .890 save percentage in six games. Under normal circumstances he'd be in the AHL, but with Ilya Samsonov (knee) and Matt Murray (groin) both recovering from injuries, the Leafs have been leaning on Kallgren. His next assignment is a tough one. The Penguins have the ninth-ranked offense with 3.54 goals per game.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Falls in OT to Knights

    Kallgren made 16 saves in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Vegas.

    While his save percentage looks bad, this loss really can't be pinned on Kallgren. The Golden Knights' three goals in regulation all came after bad giveaways by Maple Leafs, including one that produced a short-handed two-on-one for Vegas, and the 26-year-old netminder had little chance on Reilly Smith's winner in OT. Kallgren has given up four goals in three of his last four starts, and through six appearances this season he has a 1-1-3 record, 2.98 GAA and .890 save percentage. Toronto plays back-to-back games Friday and Saturday, and Kallgren should get the nod in at least one of them, but reinforcements in net could be arriving soon with Matt Murray (groin) seemingly ahead of schedule in his recovery.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Starting Tuesday

    Kallgren will guard the home net in Tuesday's matchup with the Golden Knights, per David Alter of Sports Illustrated.

    Kallgren earned his first win of the season Sunday, stopping 29 of 30 shots against the Hurricanes. The 26-year-old netminder should receive a starter's workload in the short term while Ilya Samsonov (knee) is shelved. Kallgren is now 1-1-2 with a .904 save percentage to start the year.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Appears in relief

    Kallgren entered Saturday's 2-1 win over Boston in relief of starter Ilya Samsonov (knee) to start the third period. He stopped all seven shots he faced.

    Kallgren was already slated to start Sunday, but he could be in line for a lot more playing time if Samsonov is out for long. Matt Murray (groin) is skating, but he isn't close to a return. Kallgren has not won yet this season (0-1-2) after going 8-4-1 last season when pressed into a starting role under similar circumstances following injuries to both Jack Campbell and Petr Mrazek.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Earns first win

    Kallgren stopped 29 of 30 shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes.

    Kallgren is set to be at least the short-term No. 1 goalie for the Maple Leafs, and his first start in that role was a success. He limited the Hurricanes to a Stefan Noesen power-play goal in the first period. Kallgren is now 1-1-2 with 12 goals allowed through five appearances this season. He'll be the primary starter while Matt Murray (groin) and Ilya Samsonov (knee) are out -- Murray is considered closer to a return, which could come within the next week.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Gets Sunday's start

    Kallgren will be in the road crease against Carolina on Sunday, according to Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun.

    Kallgren is 0-1-2 this season, having given up 11 goals on only 88 shots. Kallgren will have a tough battle as he faces the Hurricanes, who have a 7-2-1 mark, averaging 3.30 goals per game this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Allows four goals in overtime loss

    Kallgren surrendered four goals on 39 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Anaheim on Sunday.

    It's never a great game when the goaltender allows four goals, but the Leafs didn't make Kallgren's job as easy as they could have. Notably, turnovers from Mitch Marner proved costly. That said, Kallgren now owns a 0-1-2 record, 3.62 GAA, and .875 save percentage in three games this season. Matt Murray (groin) is still likely at least two weeks away from returning based on his original timetable, but once he's back, Kallgren is expected to be returned to the AHL.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Facing Anaheim on Sunday

    Kallgren will be between the pipes Sunday on the road against Anaheim, Luke Fox of Sportsnet reports.

    Kallgren will get the second half of a back-to-back situation for the Maple Leafs after Ilya Samsonov played in Saturday's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles. The former is coming off a 27-save effort in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to San Jose. The loss dropped Kallgren's record to 0-1-1 on the year. He will face a Ducks team that has one win through eight games (1-6-1) this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Loses in overtime

    Kallgren allowed four goals on 31 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Sharks.

    Kallgren was steady enough to get the game to overtime, as the Maple Leafs pulled even. He couldn't stop Erik Karlsson 57 seconds into the extra session. Kallgren has allowed seven goals on 49 shots in two appearances, and he's faced two lower-tier teams in the Sharks and the Coyotes. Those aren't encouraging results for the 26-year-old, but he should maintain the backup job, at least until Matt Murray (groin) is ready to return.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Guarding goal Thursday

    Kallgren will start Thursday's road matchup against San Jose, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Kallgren will get his second start of the season. He surrendered three goals on 18 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Coyotes on Oct. 17 during his season debut. San Jose has two wins through nine games this season.

  • Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Falls to Coyotes

    Kallgren stopped 15 of 18 shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Coyotes.

    Arizona's final tally was scored into an empty net. Kallgren wasn't very busy in his season debut but also didn't have much chance on any of the pucks that beat him, as two came on Coyotes power plays and the third was the result of sloppy defensive play by the Leafs behind their own net. The 26-year-old will back up Ilya Samsonov for at least the next month or so while Matt Murray (groin) is out of action.
