The Toronto Maple Leafs have been criticized more than once for their stability in net and while they are still trusting Frederik Andersen and Jack Campbell as their goaltending duo, they added one more piece into the mix on Tuesday night.
General manager Kyle Dubas has signed signed goaltender Aaron Dell to a one-year contract valued at $800,000.
The 31-year-old played in 33 games with the San Jose Sharks in 2019-20, and posted a 12-15-3 record with a 3.01 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage.
In 107 career NHL contests with San Jose, the Airdrie, Dell owns a 48-34-12 record with a 2.76 goals-against average, a .908 save percentage and five shutouts.
He originally signed as a free agent in San Jose back on March 4, 2015.
The Leafs therefore get an experienced No. 3 for the organization. This will surely created some some healthy competition in Toronto, which could push all three goalies to perform well for the upcoming season.
Good move, Dubas.
