Dell has played in the National Hockey League since the 2016-2017 season. He spent all of his campaigns with the San Jose Sharks, the organization that hired him as a free agent in 2015.

Last year, he played 33 games and maintained a 12-15-3 record, a 3.01 goals-against average and a .907 save rate.

With this hiring, the Maple Leafs exceed the salary cap by a few hundred thousand dollars. Prior to Dell’s arrival, the team had only $ 400,000 available, according to the website.
