Fantasy Summary

Positionally sound goaltender with good size. Injuries have all but completely stalled his development in recent years.


Click to Expand

July 2022 – Scott was not tendered a qualifying offer by the Maple Leafs and he will be an unrestricted free agent. Nick Richard

May 2022 – It was yet another injury-riddled season for Scott and he managed to play just in just one ECHL game for the year. He has now played a total of seven games over the last three seasons and there are real question marks regarding his future as a pro hockey player. The Leafs had high hopes for the former CHL Goaltender of the Year but at this point, they have a decision to make in terms of extending him a qualifying offer or allowing his rights to lapse this offseason. Nick Richard

September 2021 – It has been a difficult couple of years for Scott as he has dealt with a variety of injuries that have completely derailed his development. He and the Leafs were surely hoping those struggles would be a thing of the past but Scott suffered another groin injury just minutes into his first appearance of the 2021-22 preseason. There has been no word on the exact extent of the injury but he is expected to miss significant time, once again placing him behind the eight ball and hampering his development. Scott still has NHL potential but maintaining his health is the top priority at this stage. Nick Richard

May 2021 – Scott played 5 total games in 2020-21, not the return we hoped for after missing the entire previous year. His single AHL contest went poorly, and in a reassignment to the ECHL he managed just a .850 sv% in 4 starts. This isn’t unexpected given his sporadic availability – Scott’s development path is simple: stay healthy for long enough to get in a groove. Hayden Soboleski

February 2021 – Hours before being scheduled to start in net for the Marlies, news broke that Scott is week-to-week with a groin injury. Scott is becoming injury-prone at the worst possible times. His AHL debut will have to wait yet again. Hayden Soboleski

February 2021 – Scott hasn’t seen game action in over a year but he appears to be a member of the 2020-21 Marlies roster. There are still roster spots available with no clear starter on the team yet so it is still to-be-determined if he will be a 1B in a tandem or more of a true backup given his lack of pro experience. Regardless, it is good to see him healthy and on rosters, now we wait and see if he can get back to the level he was at in the WHL prior to injuries. Hayden Soboleski

December 2019 – The news on Scott’s injury is worse than expected: he has required hip surgery and will miss the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign. Luckily for him, Woll isn’t running away with the goaltending battle in the AHL, so his long-term outlook within the Maple Leafs system is still promising. This injury makes him an even riskier fantasy own, even for a goalie, so consider him high-risk, high-reward, high-patience prospect for now. Hayden Soboleski

October 2019 – That didn’t go as planned. An undisclosed injury has kept Scott from the lineup since training camp. He has been assigned to the ECHL, where he will takeover as the starting netminder once healthy. This is a good reminder that even with an unbelievably good season under one’s belt, the path for goalies is a long and patient one. Hayden Soboleski

September 2019 – As expected, Scott has been assigned to Marlies training camp. The stars may be aligning for him, as crease competition Joseph Woll has a broken finger, and an undisclosed injury to Neuvirth may keep the veteran Hutchinson up with the Leafs. This means that until players return from their various injuries, the AHL crease is Scott’s to run with. Hayden Soboleski

May 2019 – WHL Goalie of the Year. WHL Playoffs MVP. Heading to the Memorial Cup. 0.932 sv% in regular season (49 games played), 0.925 sv% in playoffs (22 games played). Scott’s outstanding campaign continues. Hayden Soboleski

January 2019 – Scott served as the backup for Team Canada at the WJCs, behind a rock-solid Mikey DiPietro who never let go of the reigns. This was still great experience for the young net-minder now among Junior’s best. Hayden Soboleski

December 2018 – Not a bad month for Ian Scott – he has made Team Canada for the WJC and signed an ELC with the Leafs. The breakout campaign continues. Hayden Soboleski

November 2018 – Scott keeps building on his breakout WHL campaign. Now rocking a .941 SV% through 15 games, he has been named to Team WHL in the upcoming CIBC Canada/Russia series. Hayden Soboleski

October 2018 – Scott has started the season strong, already earning WHL and CHL Goalie-of-the-week honors. He is rocking a .944 Sv% through 5 games so far with Prince Albert. With the team’s goaltending depth taking a big hit thanks to the waiver wire, Scott could be a contender for AHL netminder next year. Hayden Soboleski

March 2018 – Ian Scott is a highly regarded young goalie prospect. He is very athletic and quick.  Scott was ranked third among North American goalies by NHL Central Scouting. He has been stuck in the WHL behind a very poor team that makes it hard to evaluate his poor stats. However it does look like Scott has latent potential that perhaps just needs time to develop. Scott as a 19 year old prospect will play another season in the WHL before he gets the chance to turn Pro. Brian Harling
