Maple Leafs announce last minute lineup change vs. Ducks

As announced minutes ago.



The Toronto Maple Leafs are attempting to go for their second straight victory tonight in Southern California, looking to build off last night's 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings at Arena when they pay a visit to the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center. 

And ahead of tonight's matchup, they've announced a roster move. Coming into action is forward Pontus Holmberg to replace Nick Robertson: 

Holmberg has skated in nine games so far in the the 2023-24 season for the Leafs, registering a single assist. Meanwhile, Robertson has scored five goals with six assists in 24 games played.

Additionally, it will be veteran Martin Jones once again getting the nod between the pipes: 

Jones, who signed with the Leafs this summer after playing last season with the Seattle Kraken, began the year as the 3rd goaltender on the depth chart behind Ilya Samsonov and Joseph Woll. But with the injury to Woll and the waiving of Samsonov, Jones has suddenly been thrust into action. 

In eight games in his first campaign with the Leafs, Jones owns a record of 5-3-0 with a respectable 2.37 goals against average and .926 save percentage along with two shutouts.
