Ilya Samsonov leaves the Bruins game with a knee injury

No word on how severe this is.

Ilya Samsonov did not appear for the third period as the Maple Leafs led the Bruins 2-1. Erik Källgren finished the game.

The only obvious play where Samsonov looked off was the penalty shot goal by Brad Marchand:

As you know, Matt Murray is injured and not yet ready to return leaving Erik Källgren as the only available goalie on an NHL contract. The Leafs next game is tomorrow.

When we know more, so will you.

Just to emphasize, there are no goalies under NHL contract. The Marlies played tonight with Keith Petruzzelli playing in Belleville. The Leafs play in Carolina tomorrow at 5pm. So if Samsonov can’t play as backup to Källgren, some other goalie will have to be found for at least that game.

It’s not technically true that no other goalie is on an NHL contract. Drafted prospect Dennis Hildeby is currently playing in Sweden.

Other reports indicate that Samsonov will not travel with the Leafs. Still no word on the timeframe of this injury, and while Petruzzelli has been great in the AHL... well, goalies, who knows, but it hardly seems like a long term solution.

Matt Murray is eligible to come off of LTIR, but is not yet ready to play.

Confirmation on the official roster than Petruzzelli is now in the NHL, and Samsonov is on IR:
