The Toronto Maple Leafs Sign Another Young Goaltender

“The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to beef up their goaltending.

The Leafs have signed college free agent Ben Scrivens to a one year, entry-level contract.

Scrivens, a native of Spruce Grove, Alberta, starred with Cornell and was a top 10 Hobey Baker finalist for college player of the year. He just finished his fourth season with the Big Red, compiling a 21-9-4 record and an impressive .934 save percentage.

Scrivens is expected to challenge for a spot with the Toronto Marlies next season.” (Source: TSN)

Well, I guess there’s always room for more goaltending talent and Brian Burke seems determined to bolster the defensive side of the team.

It will be interesting to see if there will be any players available via trade with the Washington Capitals after their early playoff exit at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens just moments ago, especially considering the Caps uncertain future pertaining to goaltending.

    I wonder where Scrivens will play next season. I don’t think they’ve given up on Riemer yet, who should be splitting time with Rynnas on the Marlies … Maybe the ECHL? That or Rynnas and Scrivens stay with the Marlies

    I’m pretty sure all these goalie acquisitions (along with what would seem like too many blueliners) should play into Toronto’s favour when it comes time to deal away some of the Goalies/Blueline for some much needed offense.

    I can see them wanting to move Giggy at the deadline next year, if he’d waive his no trade clause. We know that Burke won’t ask him to waive it.

    For 2011-12, Gustavsson and either Reimer or Rynnas for the Leafs, Reimer or Rynnas and Scrivens for the Marlies.
