NHL Buzz: Maple Leafs place Samsonov on injured reserve

Toronto Maple Leafs

Ilya Samsonov was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury and is expected to miss at least a week.

Samsonov was injured in a successful penalty attempt by Brad Marchand in the second period of Toronto’s 2-1 win against the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

“With the nature of the injury, and probably more specifically with his position, it’s going to be more than a week,” coach Sheldon Keefe said before the Maple Leafs played the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday. “We’ll probably know the full extent later today or (Monday).”

The Maple Leafs were already without injured goaltenders Matt Murray and Joseph Woll. Erik Kallgren will start against Carolina. Keith Petruzzelli signed a contract with the NHL to serve as a backup goaltender.

“Our organization identified him as a guy to give an opportunity that we could work with and develop,” Keefe said. “He’s not a guy that comes out of nowhere. His signing will certainly be accelerated given our situation, but he’s a guy that our organization has believed in and, frankly, the way it was going, his signing was somewhat inevitable.”

Murray is expected to return soon. He was placed on long-term injured reserve with an adductor injury on Oct. 15.

“Matt Murray’s return is on the horizon,” Keefe said. “It’s not going to be as big a window of opportunity (for Petruzzelli) as you might perceive it to be. Matt Murray has progressed very well. His return is not too far away.” — Kurt Dusterberg
