The Toronto Maple Leafs solidified their goaltending Monday.

Toronto inked Joseph Woll to a three-year contract extension with a $3.66-million cap hit, the team announced.

The Maple Leafs then signed free agent Anthony Stolarz to a two-year pact with a $2.5-million cap hit, the club confirmed Tuesday.

Toronto also brought back netminder Matt Murray on a one-year, $875,000 deal.

Stolarz, 30, posted a .925 save percentage in 27 games with the Florida Panthers last season. He has a career .915 SV% in 108 contests.

Woll will play out the final season of his current contract at a $776,667 cap hit before his new deal starts for the 2025-26 campaign. The 25-year-old was scheduled for restricted free agency next summer.

The Maple Leafs could hand the keys to Woll to be a full-time starter next season. Ilya Samsonov signed with the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday, and Martin Jones is a pending unrestricted free agent.

Woll battled injuries this past season but managed a .907 save percentage in 25 contests. He took over in goal for Samsonov late in Toronto's first-round clash against the Boston Bruins and led the Leafs to a pair of victories. However, he suffered an injury late in Game 6 and was unavailable for the series finale, which Boston won.

Toronto drafted Woll in the third round in 2016. He made his NHL debut during the 2021-22 season and has 36 career appearances under his belt.

Murray underwent hip surgery in October and didn't play a game for the Leafs this season. The 30-year-old suited up for three games with their AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, in 2023-24. He won the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016 as a rookie and again in 2017.
