Keefe on Woll: 'He’s going to miss some time, for sure'

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Joseph Woll will miss time after he left Thursday's 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators with what appeared to be a left-leg injury.

“It’s unfortunate, right,” Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe said post-game. “He’s been playing so well. He was building such great momentum here on his season and his career. It’s a setback here now.

"He’s going to miss some time, for sure. We’ll determine the extent of it once we get home. Obviously, he’s the big reason why we get two points here tonight.”

The incident occurred half way through the third period when Woll stopped a routine shot from Senators forward Rourke Chartier before he collapsed in his crease.

Woll, 25, had to be helped off the ice while unable to put any weight on his left leg.

The 6-foot-3 netminder had backstopped the Maple Leafs to a 3-2 lead at the time of the injury after making 29 saves.

Woll has a 8-5-1 record this season with a .919 save percentage and 2.62 goals-against average.

Martin Jones entered the game in relief of Jones in his first NHL appearance since since he appeared in relief for the Seattle Kraken in a 6-3 loss to the Dallas Stars in Game 4 of the second round of the playoffs last season.

Jones, 33, signed a one-year, $875,000 deal with the Maple Leafs in the off-season and has 2-1-1 record with the AHL's Toronto Marlies with a .970 save percentage and 3.31 GAA.
