There's been lots of question marks regarding goalie Frederik Andersen over the last week or so.
Lots of questions and no real answers including head coach Sheldon Keefe saying that the goalie is going through a "variety of different evaluations".
It doesn't look like he's returning anytime soon and the Leafs called up Veini Vehvilainen and the expectation is that he could be expected to play in the coming days depending on how Michael Hutchinson's start goes tonight.
While Andersen hasn't been placed on IR, the question has to be asked.... is he done for the season?
NHL insider Elliotte Friedman did some digging and came up with this.
"Here’s the best info I can find: The Maple Leafs do not believe — as I write this — that Andersen’s injury is season-ending. They are not eager to eat their precious cap space on another netminder unless they absolutely have to. I do suspect GM Kyle Dubas has a move or two in his back pocket, and is waiting until the numbers work — or something else drops on his lap."
How much longer can the team possibly need to evaluate Andersen?
