Rittich spent the last five seasons in the Flames’ organization. It was clear he was about to be moved when the Flames played themselves out of a playoff spot. He is a pending UFA. He set career highs in the 2018-19 campaign with 27 wins and a .911 save percentage. He posted a 4-7-1 record and a .904 save percentage in 15 games this season.

This seems to suggest that the Maple Leafs don’t believe Frederik Andersen will be back before the end of the regular season and were concerned with his health. It is likely Rittich will back up Jack Campbell for the remainder of the season.
