Maple Leafs waive disappointing goalie Jhonas Enroth

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in the market for a backup goaltender after placing Jhonas Enroth on waivers Monday. The 28-year-old Swede failed to record a win in six games (four starts) this season after signing a one-year, $750,000 US deal in August.

Swede winless in 6 games with 3.94 GAA, .872 save percentage

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in the market for a backup goaltender after placing Jhonas Enroth on waivers Monday.

Enroth, 28, failed to record a win in six games (four starts) with the Maple Leafs after signing a one-year, $750,000 US deal in August.

The Swede last played Wednesday in Calgary, where he allowed two goals in the opening minute of a 3-0 loss. He departs with a 0-3-1 record on the season with a 3.94 goals-against average and .872 save percentage.

Enroth is 50-69-16 all-time with a 2.84 GAA and .909 save percentage.

Last season, the five-foot-10, 170-pound netminder boasted a 2.17 GAA and .922 save percentage in 16 games (13 starts) last season with the Los Angeles Kings.

He broke into the NHL in the 2009-10 campaign and went on to play four-plus seasons with the Buffalo Sabres before a trade to Dallas in the 2014-15 season.

Toronto management had hoped the Andersen-Enroth tandem was a step up from the Jonathan Bernier-James Reimer duo.

The 27-year-old Andersen, after a slow start to the season coming off an upper-body injury, has done his part, going 10-6-4 with a 2.86 GAA and .913 save percentage.

The 10-9-5 Leafs are idle until Wednesday when the Minnesota Wild visit the Air Canada Centre.
