Another EBUG called by Toronto hours before Game 4

He's on his way down to south Florida.



The Toronto Maple Leafs are now officially in must-win mode, as they trail their Round 2 Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the Florida Panthers three games to none heading into tonight's Game 4. 

And the bad news is that starting goaltender Ilya Samsonov, who departed Game 3 with an injury, is unavailable for tonight's game. Third string net minder Joseph Woll has been named tonight's starter, while veteran Matt Murray will be serving as backup.

For Murray, he was called upon to be the team's official emergency goaltender upon Samsonov's departure. And as he's tonight's official backup, the Leafs are in need of another emergency goalie option, or EBUG. It will be Dennis Hildeby, who was called up from the American Hockey League affiliate Toronto Marlies this afternoon. 

He was drafted by Toronto with the 122nd pick (Round 4) of the 2022 NHL Draft, and has posted a 2.26 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage in 21 games this year with Farjestads BK Karlstad in Sweden. He's also appeared in one game with the Marlies.
