Fringe Signing (Aug 22)

Looks like we're going to have a good goalie battle going on in Toronto this Fall, as the Maple Leafs have added Jhonas Enroth to their roster, signing him to a 1-year, $750,000 deal on Monday.

The 28-year old will battle against Garrett Sparks for the back-up job behind Frederik Andersen this October and having some veteran experience, should help his cause in earning the job.  Last season with the Kings, Enroth appeared in 16 games, registering 7 wins and 2 shutouts for 18 points in hockey pool terms.

Until there's a clear winner for the job, I currently have Enroth and Sparks splitting the back-up hockey pool projections, each taking 10 points.  This would keep them both down in the rankings come draft day, but these projections will change as we get to know more about the team, as it unfolds.
