The Toronto Maple Leafs have added a new goaltender.

According to a report from National Hockey League insider Kevin Weekes, Stolarz and the Maple Leafs have come to terms on a new deal that will presumably keep Stolarz in Toronto for the next two years. Stolarz's new contract will carry an average annual value and salary cap hit in the range of $2 million per season.

Stolarz is coming off of a very strong regular season for the Florida Panthers, one in which he appeared in 27 games and recorded a 2.03 goals against average and a .925 save percentage. He of course was also part of thee Panthers' run to the Stanley Cup this season, although Stolarz only briefly appeared in 1 game during that run to the Stanley Cup championship.

This new deal will keep him under contract for 2 of the 3 years of Joseph Woll's new contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs, indicating that the Leafs plan to use these two as a tandem for the foreseeable future.

The Maple Leafs were reportedly in on a number of different goaltenders in free agency, but I suspect that this deal will put an end to all of those other potential possibilities.
