Toronto Maple Leafs

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.
