Major Turnaround In Jospeh Woll's Health Status After The All-Star Break

Published February 4, 2024 at 10:59 PM

Joseph Woll was notably absent from Toronto's practice after the All-Star break, putting a damper on expectations for the netminder's swift return to action.

Maple Leafs Head Coach Sheldon Keefe had anticipated Woll's comeback at this juncture but acknowledged that the goalie is still a bit away from hitting the ice.

Woll has been sidelined since early December with an ankle sprain, remaining present with the team throughout his recovery. While there were speculations about a potential extended absence, his continued non-participation emphasizes the uncertainty surrounding his return timeline.

The 27-year-old Woll has showcased a solid performance this season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, holding an 8-5-1 record, a 2.80 GAA, and a .916 SV%.

In Woll's prolonged absence, the Leafs have relied on the goaltending duo of Ilya Samsonov and Martin Jones, managing a 12-8-4 record without him since his injury.

As Toronto navigates through a fluctuating 2024, marked by a mix of winning and winless streaks, they head into a matchup against the New York Islanders at Scotiabank Arena Monday, with the starting goalie yet to be announced.
