Maple Leafs put Frederik Andersen on IR, hold out Garret Sparks

Michael Hutchinson resembled a $50 rent-a-goalie swinging by to pocket a wad of beer money, get a healthy sweat, and help out your friendly neighbourhood men's league Thursday afternoon at Scotiabank Arena.

Hutchinson had been acquired by the Leafs from the Florida Panthers on December 29 for a 2020 fifth-round draft pick.

Hutchinson, who made his Marlies debut on December 31, will make the start Thursday for the Leafs' home game against the Wild.

"Focus on here, focus on helping this team win".

"It's getting close", Andersen said of his status.

"I've had progression over the last few days, and (now) going through a full practice and feeling pretty good", Andersen said. Andersen said at the MasterCard Centre.

"We need to see how it responds today and I think we're all aware of what time of year it is right now and making sure we get this done the right way", Andersen said. "The Christmas break, it didn't really respond the way we hoped, and we figured it was time to shut it down and make sure we didn't beat around the bush anymore".

Hulk Hogan to Appear on Raw to Celebrate Gene Okerlund's Life
The passing of "Mean" Gene Okerlund has opened the door for a controversial WWE Hall of Famer to return to TV. Following word of his death, Hogan took to Twitter , saying Okerlund was "the best partner I ever had".

"I've changed numbers over the years quite a bit, so it was neat for some people that you've played with throughout your junior career track you down and congratulate you", he said. It will also be interesting to see how the Marlies season plays out and whether any other players get promoted down the road like Timothy Liljegren. "You would like to have a tree in your backyard and you just pick them off, but there is none of that".

Andersen is 20-9-1 this season, with his 20 wins the the second-highest in the National Hockey League. His win total is second only to Marc-Andre Fleury's 23 with the Vegas Golden Knights, while he's faced 781 shots at even strength, second only to Ottawa's Craig Anderson (820).

The Toronto Maple Leafs goaltending situation was clarified a bit on Friday, as Frederik Andersen took part in his first practice since before the Christmas break and backup Garret Sparks was diagnosed with a concussion. "You have to make sure you do your rehab the right way and eventually you'll be fine", Andersen said. "Push a little too hard and you might make it worse. You can't let that stuff get in your emotions and affect you like that".

Hutchinson, meanwhile, is once again looking to simply prove he belongs in the National Hockey League.

The 21-year-old winger, who was snubbed for the all-star game despite sitting sixth in league scoring with 53 points before taking on the Wild, then made it 2-0 with his 15th goal of the season and ninth in the last eight games.

But a little more than five minutes later, the Wild were facing a 2-0 hill to a team that was 20-1-1 when they scored first and 17-0 when they led after the. "It's something that you just have to embrace".
