Maple Leafs' Bobby McMann: Dropped down a level
McMann was sent down to AHL Toronto on Monday, per CapFriendly.
McMann was added to the roster before Saturday's tilt with Boston, but he didn't crack the lineup. The rookie forward has two points, both assists, in four NHL games this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Max Lajoie: Dropped to minors
Lajoie was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Monday, per CapFriendly.
Lajoie continues to shuffle between the AHL and NHL levels regularly. He hasn't seen any NHL action since Nov. 4, his only appearance with the big club this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Martin Jones: Sent back down
Jones was demoted to AHL Toronto on Monday, per CapFriendly.
Jones was promoted to serve as the backup Saturday against Boston, but he didn't see any game action. The 33-year-old netminder has yet to appear in an NHL game this season and likely won't any time soon, barring an injury to Ilya Samsonov or Joseph Woll.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Mark Giordano: Lands on injured reserve
Giordano (finger) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.
Giordano is already considered week-to-week with a broken finger, so this move is unlikely to impact his timeline to return. The 40-year-old defenseman's absence opens the door for Simon Benoit and William Lagesson to play more frequently, as the Maple Leafs navigate a rough patch for health on their blue line....

Maple Leafs' Joseph Woll: Falls short against Boston
Woll kicked out 33 of 37 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Boston on Saturday.
Woll allowed a goal in each period, including the overtime frame. He's struggled lately, surrendering a minimum of three goals in six of his last seven contests, though he still has a 4-2-1 record over that span. Through 14 games this year, Woll is 8-5-1 with a 2.82 GAA and a .915 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Max Domi: Contributes goal Saturday
Domi found the back of the net in a 4-3 overtime loss to Boston on Saturday.
Domi's marker was his first of the season, though he had contributed 11 assists over 21 games going into Saturday's action. He's recorded just 31 shots this season for a pace of 1.41 per game. Domi is currently on track for the lowest shots per game of his career. However, when you consider the 28-year-old entered the contest averaging just 12:58 of ice time, which is down from his career average of 16:16, perhaps it's not surprising Domi isn't taking many shots....

Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Scores twice in loss to Boston
Matthews collected two goals in a 4-3 overtime loss to Boston on Saturday.
Matthews couldn't save Toronto, but his second goal came with just six seconds remaining in the third period to force overtime and allow the Maple Leafs to walk away with a point. He ended his four-game goal-scoring drought in the process, which is tied for his longest slump of the 2023-24 campaign. Through 22 appearances this season, he has 16 goals and 25 points....

Maple Leafs' Bobby McMann: Back in NHL
McMann was summoned from AHL Toronto on Saturday.
McMann has two assists, five shots on goal and three hits in four NHL outings this season. He played in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over Seattle prior to a brief return to the minors for cap-related reasons. Per David Alter of Sports Illustrated, Ryan Reaves will play Saturday versus Boston instead of McMann.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Max Lajoie: Up from minors
Lajoie was summoned by the Maple Leafs on Saturday, per the AHL transaction list.
Lajoie has five assists in 14 contests with AHL Toronto this season. He's also appeared in one game with the Maple Leafs this year, recording a minus-1 rating and one hit in 4:54 of ice time. Lajoie's projected to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against Boston based on line rushes, David Alter of Sports Illustrated reports.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Martin Jones: Recalled Saturday
The Maple Leafs recalled Jones from AHL Toronto on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Ilya Samsonov is unable to play Saturday due to an illness, necessitating the recall of Jones. Jones is 2-1-1 with a 3.37 GAA and .870 save percentage at the AHL level this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Ilya Samsonov: Out of action Saturday
Samsonov will miss Saturday's game versus Boston with an illness, per Mark Masters of TSN.
Martin Jones has been recalled from the AHL and will back up Joseph Woll on Saturday. Samsonov is 4-1-3 with a 3.58 GAA and .878 save percentage. He should be recovered in time for the Maple Leafs' next game, as they are off until Thursday when they face Ottawa.... See More ... See Less
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. The Bruins will provide a tough matchup as they lead the Atlantic Division with 33 points in 22 games, averaging 31.7 shots per contest.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Bobby McMann: Sent down Friday
McMann was demoted to AHL Toronto on Friday, per CapFriendly.
McMann posted a minus-2 rating and two PIM in 5:44 of ice time during Thursday's loss to the Kraken. The 27-year-old has been held without a point in his last three NHL appearances after tallying two assists in his NHL season debut.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Max Lajoie: Dropped to AHL
Lajoie was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Friday, per CapFriendly.
Lajoie was a healthy scratch Thursday against Seattle after being promoted from the minors. He's dressed in just one NHL game this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Quiet spell broken by two assists
Matthews delivered two assists Thursday in a 4-3 shootout win over the Kraken.
The points were his first in four games. And he has put up points in just two of his last eight contests. Coach Sheldon Keefe recently split Matthews and Mitchell Marner up to try to inject some life into the top lines, moving William Nylander up to play with Matthews. And it seems to have produced results. Matthews is too good for this slump to continue. Get ready to hold onto your hat, because he may be about to take off.... See More ... See Less
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' Mitchell Marner: Goal-scoring outburst
Marner delivered a hat trick Thursday in a 4-3 shootout win over the Kraken.
It was all Marner, all night. Not only did he end an eight-game goal drought, but he also scored the winner in the shootout. Marner has 23 points in 21 games, a total that most NHLers would count as otherworldly. But not Marner, whose body language on the ice to date has bordered on outright frustration. But with the goals, he's back on pace for his third straight 30-goal season. Marner was shifted to John Tavares' line recently, and it looks like coach Sheldon Keefe's decision to shuffle the lines was likely a good one. Now to get Auston Matthews rolling.... See More ...
