Frederik Andersen says Good Bye to Leafs Fans

Former Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen took to social media on Thursday to say goodbye to the fans in Toronto.

"It's been a privilege and an honor to represent the Maple Leafs and play in front of the great fans and people in the city of Toronto. Thank you for all the memories and friendships that will last a lifetime," Andersen said.

After five years in Toronto, the Herning, Denmark native signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes on free agency day. Due to a knee injury, Andersen missed most of the 2020-21 season. Jack Campbell filled in admirably. The Maple Leafs signed former Hurricanes netminder Petr Mrazek to a three-year contract to replace Andersen.

From 2016 to 2021, Andersen had a 149-74-36 record with a 2.79 goals against average, a.914 save percentage, and 13 shutouts.
