Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Recalled from AHL
Kallgren was recalled from AHL Toronto on an emergency basis Saturday.
Ilya Samsonov was unable to practice Friday due to an illness, so Kallgren's recall likely means that Samsonov is questionable to play Saturday at best. Kallgren was 3-2-4 with a 2.67 GAA and .898 save percentage earlier in the season for the Maple Leafs. If Samsonov is unable to go, look for Joseph Woll to get the start versus Montreal on Saturday.... See More ... See Less

Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Downs flightless birds
Kallgren made 25 saves in a 4-1 win over the Penguins on Saturday.
The young goaltender played well. Rickard Rakell was the only Pens player to beat Kallgren when he wired a wrist shot near the right post at 11:38 of the third period. Since early November, Kallgren is 3-1-2 in six starts. Ilya Samsonov will be back in the Leafs' fold soon, so Kallgren will soon find himself back with the Marlies. Get ready to change course with your spot starters/backups.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Expected to start Saturday
Kallgren will start on the road against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Kallgren is getting an opportunity to play because Matt Murray started in Toronto's 4-3 win over Minnesota on Friday and Ilya Samsonov is unavailable due to a knee injury. Kallgren is 2-2-4 with a 2.87 GAA and .891 save percentage in nine games this season. Pittsburgh has the sixth-ranked offense at 3.55 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Suffers hard-luck loss
Kallgren made 21 saves during Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Kallgren started for the first time since Nov. 12 and waited 6:41 before executing his first save. With the way Monday's matchup opened, the Maple Leafs appeared poised to continue their recent dominance over the Islanders. The host team generated the first seven shots, but the Islanders recovered and Kallgren (2-2-4) ended up surrendering the game-winner to Anthony Beauvillier 1:56 into the extra stanza. The Maple Leafs dropped their first game to Islanders since Nov. 13, 2019, a span of five games.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Set to start Monday
Kallgren is expected to be between the pipes at home versus the Islanders on Monday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Kallgren has watched from the bench for the Leafs' previous three contests after Matt Murray returned from injury. Prior to Murray's return, the 26-year-old Kallgren made four straight starts in which he posted a 2-1-1 record and 2.51 GAA. At this point, Kallgren shouldn't be expected to face a heavy workload, though a back-to-back Friday and Saturday against Minnesota and Pittsburgh, respectively, should provide Kallgren an opportunity to start again soon....

Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Back in win column
Kallgren made 27 saves in a 3-2 win over Vancouver on Saturday.
He wobbled in the first -- both Bo Horvat and J.T. Miller beat him by the 12:11 mark and the Leafs were down 2-0. But Kallgren buckled down and his teammates started the comeback. He preserved the 3-2 lead when he stopped Conor Garland on a breakaway with 3:10 left in the game. Kallgren improved to 2-2-3 with a 2.86 GAA and .893 save percentage, and he will continue to be the Leafs' top option until Matt Murray (groin) or Ilya Samsonov (knee) returns.... See More ...

Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Between pipes Saturday
Kallgren will get the home crease against Vancouver on Saturday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports,
It will be back-to-back nights for Kallgren, who gave up three goals on 22 shots in a 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh on Friday. Kallgren is 1-2-3 this season with a 3.00 GAA and an .886 save percentage. He will take on the Canucks, who are 4-7-3 and have averaged 3.50 goals per game this season.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Suffers showcase game defeat
Kallgren turned aside 19 of 22 shots during Friday's 4-2 loss to the visiting Penguins in the Hockey Hall of Fame Game.
Kallgren, making his third straight start, faced a Penguins squad that entered Friday with one win in its previous eight outings. The Maple Leafs failed to match the Penguins' physicality -- they were outhit 41-14 -- and Kallgren (1-2-3) surrendered the game-winner on a screened wrist shot by Brock McGinn. Goalie Keith Petruzzelli could get the start against the Canucks on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Set to start Friday
Kallgren is expected to start at home against Pittsburgh on Friday, per David Alter of Sports Illustrated.
Kallgren has a 1-1-3 record, 2.99 GAA, and .890 save percentage in six games. Under normal circumstances he'd be in the AHL, but with Ilya Samsonov (knee) and Matt Murray (groin) both recovering from injuries, the Leafs have been leaning on Kallgren. His next assignment is a tough one. The Penguins have the ninth-ranked offense with 3.54 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Falls in OT to Knights
Kallgren made 16 saves in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Vegas.
While his save percentage looks bad, this loss really can't be pinned on Kallgren. The Golden Knights' three goals in regulation all came after bad giveaways by Maple Leafs, including one that produced a short-handed two-on-one for Vegas, and the 26-year-old netminder had little chance on Reilly Smith's winner in OT. Kallgren has given up four goals in three of his last four starts, and through six appearances this season he has a 1-1-3 record, 2.98 GAA and .890 save percentage. Toronto plays back-to-back games Friday and Saturday, and Kallgren should get the nod in at least one of them, but reinforcements in net could be arriving soon with Matt Murray (groin) seemingly ahead of schedule in his recovery....

Maple Leafs' Erik Kallgren: Starting Tuesday
Kallgren will guard the home net in Tuesday's matchup with the Golden Knights, per David Alter of Sports Illustrated.
Kallgren earned his first win of the season Sunday, stopping 29 of 30 shots against the Hurricanes. The 26-year-old netminder should receive a starter's workload in the short term while Ilya Samsonov (knee) is shelved. Kallgren is now 1-1-2 with a .904 save percentage to start the year....
