Toronto Maple Leafs Goaltending Depth

Jack Campbell

Jack Campbell will be looking to solidify his role as the Toronto Maple Leafs number one goaltender. Last season, Campbell posted a 17-3-2 record in 22 games as the backup to Frederik Andersen. Campbell will have a much tougher season this year with a full 82 game schedule and being back in the tougher Atlantic Division. (Stats from hockey-reference.com)

This season, we will likely see Campbell play more than his career-high of 31 games in a season. If he does become Toronto’s number one goaltender, then he’ll probably play in close to 50 games this season. Hopefully, his playing time is managed well by Sheldon Keefe and the coaching staff.

Petr Mrazek

With Andersen leaving in free agency, Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas wanted to sign a goaltender that would compliment Campbell. That goaltender is Petr Mrazek who signed a three year deal with $3.8 million AAV.

Mrazek has spent the last three seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes where he posted a 50-32-8 record in 90 starts. He will be battling with Campbell for playing time this season, but is used to working in a tandem setting as opposed to a starter/backup setup.

The Maple Leafs would be wise to split the starts as evenly as possible between Campbell and Mrazek unless one of them goes on a good winning run.
