Erik Kallgren

Erik Kallgren will be trying to earn a spot with the Toronto Marlies this season after signing a two-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs. If he can’t earn a spot on the AHL roster with the Marlies, he will likely try to win the starting goaltender job for the Newfoundland Growlers in the ECHL.

Kallgren spent last season playing for the Vaxjo Lakers in the SHL.  He posted a 12-9 record with a 2.37 GAA and a .911 SV% in 21 games. He also posted a 7-3 record in 10 playoff games last season with a 1.74 GAA and a .930 SV%.

Ian Scott

Ian Scott is a long shot to make the Toronto Marlies, but depending on what happens with Hutchinson, Scott could challenge Kallgren for the Marlies’ backup goaltenders’ job. He would get more playing time in the ECHL with the Growlers than he would with the Marlies.

Scott played in just five ECHL games last season and posted a terrible 4.17 GAA and a .844 SV%. Those stats will need to improve if he is to become a regular at the AHL level.

Final Thoughts On Toronto Maple Leafs Goaltending Depth

Depth at the goaltender position is a great thing to have. These guys will be pushing each other to be better every game. Each goaltender will know that there are guys below him in the organization waiting for their opportunity.

I can see a team with goaltending issues snatching Hutchinson off waivers, but if that doesn’t happen, here is how the depth chart will look.
