Maple Leafs bringing a goalie to camp on a PTO

Bill Meltzer: According iSport goaltender Michal Neuvirth has accepted a PTO with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

If you’re wondering about Neuvirth, I have him projected for a negative WAR next year and, in 2018-19, he faced 244 shots (17 xG) and gave up 26 goals so my expectations for TOR are tempered.https://t.co/arO4ryYeqi pic.twitter.com/ET6x0BCwq6
