With second training camp underway, the Toronto Maple Leafs prepare to host the Eastern Conference at Scotiabank Arena.
Record: 36-25-9 81 points
8th Place in the Eastern Conference
The Maple Leafs face a daunting task as they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in the Qualifying Round, and try to make it to the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
On offense Auston Matthews led the way with 47 goals and 33 assists for 80 points, and would be supported by Mitch Marner (16g, 51a, 67p), John Tavares (26g, 34a, 60p), and William Nylander (31g, 28a, 59p) in producing points for the Leafs. Zach Hyman, Kasperi Kapanen, and Alexander Kerfoot will be looking to pick up their production in the playoffs for the Leafs.
On defense Tyson Barrie led all defenders with 5 goals and 34 assists for 39 points. Morgan Rielly missed time due to injury but registered 3 goals and 24 assists for 27 points in 47 games. Jake Muzzin, Travis Dermott, and Cody Ceci will be looked to shore up the blue line for the Leafs.
Between the pipes Frederik Andersen will be the go to for the Leafs. During the 2019-20 season Andersen posted a 29-13-7 record with a 2.85 GAA and a .909 save percentage. Trade Deadline pickup Jack Campbell will be the back up to Andersen.
