The Leafs announced on Saturday morning that Woll is out week-to-week with a high ankle sprain, an injury Woll suffered in the third period of the Leafs’ 4-3 victory on Thursday in Ottawa against the Senators.

Woll couldn’t put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the ice at the Canadian Tire Centre. He crumpled to the ice in pain after making what appeared to be a routine save on a shot by the Sens’ Rourke Chartier. 

Martin Jones relieved Woll and stopped nine of 10 shots as the Leafs hung on to win.

Jones had been recalled from the Toronto Marlies on an emergency basis as Ilya Samsonov was battling an illness.

Woll had essentially taken over as the Leafs’ No. 1 goalie, posting an 8-5-1 record with a .916 save percentage and a 2.80 goals-against average. 

The Leafs play host to the Nashville Predators on Saturday night. There was no immediate word on whether it would be Samsonov or Jones in the Toronto net.
