Layoff has Leafs' Andersen on track for championship-calibre workload

2 monthes ago   |   By Sportsnet

TORONTO - Even if no one will say it quite in these terms, there is a silver lining to the groin issue that has put Frederik Andersen on course to make fewer regular-season starts than his previous two years with the Maple Leafs.
The big Dane appeared destined to blow past the NHL's point of no return for a No. 1 goaltender by playing 65-plus games once again - at least until he was shut down coming out of the Christmas break with what he described as a nagging issue that first popped up earlier in December.

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have their No. 1 goalie back in the fold.

The 29-year-old netminder hasn't played since Dec. 22 because of a groin injury. Andersen served as the backup for two games immediately before and after the NHL's Christmas break, but was then placed on injured reserve and hasn't dressed for the Leafs' last five outings.
He had originally targeted Saturday's home game against the Boston Bruins, which Toronto lost 3-2, only to be cut down by a flu bug...
