The team had no update on Samsonov who was replaced by Erik Kallgren in net. The Leafs backup was slated to start in the second half of the team’s back-to-back against the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday and the team was unsure if Samsonov will accompany them on the road trip. .

Samsonov has a 5-2 record in seven games this season posting a 2.30 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage. The team has been without Matt Murray who was placed on long-term injured reserve back on Oct. 16 with an adductor injury.
