TTM Mail Day #18: Ben Scrivens
Right now the Leafs are loaded with depth at the Goaltending Position and Scrivens a former college standout has exceeded expectations this season. He was expected to spend the season at the NHL level but due to injuries and poor play he has spent most of the season with the AHL's Toronto Marlies.
Despite being almost the full way through his first pro season, Scrivens has yet to have his mask painted. He is still rolling with the white mask. I always liked seeing the white masks come out when a goalie was traded but I can't recall the last time a goalie spent a whole year sporting a plain white mask! Anybody know of another goalie who did?
I'm not sure if Scrivens will get a chance with the Leafs but if he keeps up his play at the AHL level I'm sure he will get a shot with a team at the NHL level in the next few years.
