Former UMD and Minnesota Wilderness Goaltender Kasimir Kaskisuo has been called up to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League.


The team announced the move on Twitter.

The 26-year old from Finland is replacing backup Michael Hutchinson, who was placed on waivers Monday. Kaskisuo has never played in an NHL game. So far this season in the AHL with the Toronto Marlies, he has a 6-1-1 record with a .928 save percentage.

Kaskisuo played juniors for the Cloquet-based Minnesota Wilderness during the 2013-14 North American Hockey League (NAHL) season. He went on to play two seasons at UMD from 2014-2016.

The next game for the Maple Leafs is Wednesday on the road against the New York Islanders.
