The Toronto Maple Leafs will dress rookie Veini Vehvilainen behind starter Michael Hutchinson this evening. Jack Campbell's injury evidently is more serious than first thought and, of course, Frederik Andersen remains sidelined with an injury as well.
Suffice it to say that this is NOT good news for the Leafs. The 24 year old Vehvilainen, who was acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets earlier this month, has played just one NHL game and only a few dozen AHL games in his career. He has promise and is an intriguing prospect, but he's by no means an NHL ready goaltender. Hutchinson, by comparison, has an impressive 2.39 GAA and .922 save percentage in six games with the Leafs.
