G- Joseph Woll, 21, 6’4, 203

Joseph Woll has had an impressive journey to being the Toronto Marlies’ backup. He has been dubbed as the “Brick Woll” and has the challenge of living up to that moniker in Toronto.

Trying to assess goalies is always a struggle, as we have seen countless times that if you count them out, more often than not, you will eat those words.

Over the past years since Woll was drafted, Joseph has shown gradual improvements. Finally getting an opportunity in front of management, Woll gets showcase what he has learnt.

In the 5 games Woll has appeared in, he has posted a 2-0-3 record, with a 3.36 GAA and .897 save percentage. These numbers may not be all that impressive, but let’s not forget that Woll is 21, playing against men, in his first season in the AHL.

ETA; 2022-21, Like Lindgren, Woll being a goalie is hard to predict when he could make the jump to the Leafs full time. I am simply basing this off of the fact that Frederik Andersen could potentially leave via free agency in 2 years.

Scouting report; Woll possesses a large, projectable frame.
