DUCKS ACQUIRE DEPTH G JHONAS ENROTH
The Anaheim Ducks acquired goaltender Jhonas Enroth from the Toronto Maple Leafs for a seventh-round draft pick in 2018.
What does it give the Anaheim Ducks
This is a depth move for the Ducks, who are currently experiencing injury issues in goal with their American Hockey League club in San Diego. Furthermore, Ducks backup goaltender Jonathan Bernier (another former Maple Leafs netminder) has struggled lately. Enroth is an insurance policy.
What does it give the Toronto Maple Leafs
The Leafs just recently acquired journeyman backup goaltender Curtis McElhinney to serve as Frederik Andersen's backup for the rest of 2016-17, which made Enroth redundant. Therefore, they were able to get a late-round pick for Enroth. Antoine Bibeau will remain the third stringer for Toronto.
Enroth's fantasy value was nearly non-existent before the deal, and only injuries to both John Gibson and Bernier can revive it in Orange County. McElhinney and Bibeau are the winners of this deal, though neither have much stock either with Andersen firmly entrenched as the starter in Toronto.
