The 23-year-old Goloubef has appeared in nine games with Columbus this season. He scored his first career NHL goal on Feb. 11 vs. San Jose.
The Blue Jackets' second pick, 37th overall, in the 2008 draft, Goloubef came to the big team when several blueliners were out with injury and played well. He has 11 goals and 29 assists in 122 career AHL games, including five goals and six assists in 24 games with Springfield this season.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
