Leafs Claim Curtis McElhinney Off Waivers From Jackets 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Jan 11, 2017 7:10 am

The Maple Leafs claimed veteran backup goalie Curtis McElhinney off of waivers Tuesday from the Blue Jackets.

The Leafs had soured on backup Jhonas Enroth last month but hadn't found a real replacement to play behind starter Frederik Andersen who has started 33 of the team's 39 games this season, including three sets of back-to-backs.

The 27-year-old is on pace to start around 70 games, a substantial increase from his career high of 53 while with the Ducks.
