Toronto Maple Leafs Get Brutal News On Joseph Woll After Impressive Performance

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Joseph Woll is set to miss time due to an injury sustained during a recent game against the Ottawa Senators.

The incident occurred in the third period, after Woll made a save on a soft backhand shot from Senators forward Rourke Chartier.

He was visibly in distress and had to be helped off the ice, being unable to put any weight on his left leg. The exact nature of the injury has not been specified, but it was apparent that it involved his leg or groin.

Woll, 25 years old, has been a key player for the Maple Leafs this season, having started the majority of the games.

Before the injury, he boasted an solid record of 8-5-1 with a .916 save percentage in 15 games, which included 13 starts.

In light of Woll's injury, Martin Jones, veteran goaltender, has been called up from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis.

Jones, who has extensive NHL experience with teams like the Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks, Philadelphia Flyers, and Seattle Kraken, stepped in to replace Woll in the game against the Senators, making nine saves and securing the win for the Maple Leafs.

The injury to Woll comes at a crucial time for the Maple Leafs, as another goaltender, Ilya Samsonov, has also been out due to illness.

Samsonov, however, is reportedly close to returning to the lineup.
