Another ebug Could Play In Toronto Tonight

from David Alter of The Hockey News,

The salary cap was always going to be an issue this season for the Toronto Maple Leafs and it has now created a rare scenario.

With an injury to one of their goaltenders and other players unavailable on a short-term basis, the team was forced to sign an amateur goaltender to dress as their backup against the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Arena on Saturday.

Alex Bishop, a third-year University of Toronto goaltender from Richmond Hill will put on the Toronto Maple Leafs sweater.

"It just comes down to that the flat cap has created some situations that are difficult to manage even [more] than they were a year ago," Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe said.
