Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Ilya Samsonov has left the team to be with his wife, as the couple are expecting the birth of their first child in the coming days. There's no exact date for his return at this time.

The 26-year old goaltender is expecting the birth of his first child, and has returned home to Toronto to be with his wife Maria. The couple have been married since before Samsonov made the move to North America, and becoming parents is surely a huge achievement for them.



We hope the couple can welcome a happy and healthy baby into their family in the coming days, and wish all the best to the Samsonov family. Congratulation Ilya and Marie!
