Former Leafs Goaltender Retires

Toronto Maple Leafs' former goaltender Ian Scott has announced that he is stepping away from playing hockey, citing injuries.

The twenty-three-year-old announced the news Thursday via an Instagram post.

Scott was an unrestricted free agent this summer after not receiving a qualifying offer from the Maple Leafs.

He was a 4th-round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, and last played a full season in 2018-19. In that season with the Prince Albert Raiders of the WHL, Scott recorded a .932 save percentage and 1.83 goals against average in 49 games played.

Really sad news for Ian Scott. Wish him all the best in whatever comes next for him.
