Report: Maple Leafs shopping goaltender Calvin Pickard

Check out some of the off-season news from around the NHL including the Canadian and Flames making a trade and the Toronto Maple Leafs potentially looking to move Calvin Pickard.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are shopping goaltender Calvin Pickard around the league, according to James Mirtle of The Athletic.

The Leafs have a logjam in the crease with Pickard, Curtis McElhinney and Garret Sparks set to battle for the backup spot behind starter Frederik Andersen this season.

Pickard could be the odd man out and destined for another season with the Toronto Marlies, where he played 33 games last season, posting a 21-9-1 record with a 2.31 goals-against average and .918 save percentage, or he could find himself with a new club come October.

The 26-year-old, a second-round pick in the 2010 NHL draft, has 87 games of NHL experience under his belt. During the 2016-17 season, he played in a career-high 50 games for the Colorado Avalanche, compiling a 2.98 goals against and .904 save percentage.
