The Golden Knights have acquired Garret Sparks from the Maple Leafs for a 2020 fourth-round pick and David Clarkson.

Sparks is expected to go to Vegas to be their third string netminder after going 8-9-1 with a 3.15 GAA and .902 SV5 in 20 games with the Maple Leafs last season. It will likely take an injury to Marc-Andre Fleury and/or Malcolm Subban for Sparks to reach the NHL in 2020.

The Maple Leafs have signed Garret Sparks to a one-year extension worth $750k.

Sparks won the backup goalie battle in the preseason but has had a tough season, going 7-5-1 with a 3.09 GAA and .902 SV% in 14 games. Sparks likely has the inside track to remain the Maple Leafs backup next season but don’t be surprised if they bring in a veteran to push him in training camp.
