Maple Leafs goalies stopping lots of shots at all levels


More good Leafs-related news out of the Memorial Cup tournament last night as 2013 sixth round pick Antoine Bibeau’s resounding 47 saves on 50 shots guided his Val-d’Or Foreurs to the semifinals after a 4-3 OT win over the Edmonton Oil Kings. Among the 47 turned aside by Bibeau was a penalty shot in the first period.

Traded to Val-d’Or from Charlottetown midseason, Bibeau went 16-4-4 in the playoffs with a .913 save percentage en route to a QMJHL championship and individual MVP honours. Passed over in the 2012 draft, Bibeau is the hottest goalie in junior hockey at the moment and is looking well worth the sixth round flyer the Leafs took on him last June.

Becoming well prepared for life as a Leaf goalie.

A montage of his work this past season:

Matt Finn has two assists in two Guelph wins as the Storm are assured a place in Sunday’s final.

    Xxxxxnew  Gotta love THN. Will the leaf’s buy out David Clarkson? That’s even dumber than signing him to that contract. It’s structured so heavily in signing bonuses that a buyout provides such little relief it’s a non option.
    His source? A tweet. From? Greg Brady.

    I want Val-d’Or to win this, I don’t care that Finn plays for Storm, I am pulling for this kid right here! Bibeau

  • LeafsForLife

    Cheering for Finn to light things up and for Bibeau to do really great as well.

    Yan28  Me as well.  He is being hung out to dry by his overmatched team.  There is almost no way they can be expected to win…..but I want them to.

  • Burtonboy

    Yep he stopped a penalty shot but he also stopped the guy on a breakaway who drew the penalty. Just watching this kid play you can see he’s got great potential. Poke check ,good glove , etc,etc he’s got the whole package

    Maybe Reimer can stop a few against Finland today
