TRAGEDY: Lions star Calvin Johnson running back was involved in incident that left…….

As the fantasy hockey trade deadline approaches for most leagues, this is the final opportunity to extract value from other managers by acquiring high-upside players or selling high on others.

Woll was assigned to AHL Toronto on Feb. 21 for an LTI conditioning loan. The 25-year-old netminder looked good in a 4-1 win over Laval on Friday, stopping 36 of 37 shots. He was also tested with plenty of contact coming his way in the crease throughout the contest. Woll, who hasn’t played in the NHL since Dec. 7 because of a high-ankle sprain, rejoined the Maple Leafs on Monday for practice. He should benefit from Toronto’s improved defensive play, which he didn’t have before he was injured. With his return to action drawing near, Woll is worth adding if you need help between the pipes.

Woll sports a record of 8-5-1 with a 2.80 GAA and a .916 save percentage in 15 NHL appearances this campaign. Ilya Samsonov has registered a save percentage of .896 despite his recent six-game winning streak, while Martin Jones has gone 3-4-1 with an .867 save percentage over his past eight outings. As a result, Woll is likely to get every opportunity to regain the No. 1 role once he returns to the active roster. Samsonov could compete with him for playing time, with Jones likely being the odd man out in the equation, but Woll stands a very good chance of picking up where he left off as the team’s top option.
