The Toronto Maple Leafs open the regular season on Wednesday against their Original 6 rival Montreal Canadiens, and we now know who will be in the crease for each of the first two contests. 

Head coach Sheldon Keefe announced that Jack Campbell would be getting the start against the Habs, while Petr Mrazek will be between the pipes when his team takes on the Ottawa Senators the following night: 

The Leafs moved on from Danish goaltender Frederik Andersen during the offseason and brought aboard Mrazek, who agreed to a three year contract. 

Last year with Carolina, Mrazek posted a record of a 6-2-3 record with three shutouts, a 2.06 goals against average and a .911 save percentage. In 275 career regular season games with the Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers and Hurricanes, Mrazek sports a 128-96-31 record with a 2.59 goals against average, a .911 save percentage and 24 shutouts. 

Meanwhile, Campbell will be looking to build upon his stellar 17-3-2 record last season that saw him record a 2.15 goals against average and a .921 save percentage.
