Maple Leafs Reveal Plan For Top Goaltending Prospect

Published June 3, 2023 at 11:00
The Maple Leafs may have finally made a decision with one of their top goaltending prospects in regard to where he will play for the 2023-24 season. The decision comes after a string of moves from other teams, which seems to indicate what the Leafs plan on doing.

Leafs Bringing Over Top Prospect

According to a recent report, it appears as though the Toronto Maple Leafs will be bringing over goaltending prospect Dennis Hildeby to North America for the 2023-24 season. The news comes after a series of moves from the Vegas Golden Knights and the Swedish professional team Färjestad BK.

With Vegas' loaning of Lindbom and Färjestad BK's signing of Johansson, there's no spot left on Färjestad BK for Hildeby, indicating that he will officially be making the move to North America next season.

Where Will Hildeby Start?

With a plethora of goaltenders in the pipeline, the question remains as to where exactly Hildeby will play next season.

Some think that Hildeby could find himself in a tandem role with the Toronto Marlies in the AHL next season, while others think the young goaltender may need to spend some time with the Newfoundland Growlers of the ECHL.

Sometimes, AHL teams rotate three goaltenders in and out, which could be the case for the Marlies next season. With so many goaltenders needing places to play, this seems like the likeliest option.
