The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Finnish goaltender Kasimir Kaskisuo to a two-year, entry-level contract starting in the 2016-17 season.

Kaskisuo finished his second year at the University of Minnesota Duluth, where he went 19-5-5 with a 1.93 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage.

Back in 2014, the 22-year-old made this behind-the-back save against Miami University forward Cody Murphy.

He will join the Toronto Marlies on an amateur tryout agreement for the rest of the season.
