The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed a veteran back goalie presumably to serve in a back up role for goalie Frederik Andersen.

On Monday the Leafs announced via their official website that Jhonas Enroth, most recently of the Los Angeles Kings, was the newest member of the Maple Leafs roster. According to the official announcement it's a one year deal with a value of $750,000, a nice chunk of change for Enroth but certainly not something that will break the bank for the Leafs.

It's a good time to pick him up as well, while he only played 16 games for the Kings last season, he had some very solid numbers over that stretch, much better than his NHL career averages in fact. Enroth had a 2.17 goals against average over those 16 contests and recorded a save percentage of .922 which is not bad at all. If he can bring that kind of consistency to Toronto it's a great signing for the Leafs no matter how you break it down.
