Opportunity brought Mason Raymond and the Toronto Maple Leafs together.
The free-agent left-winger will attend Maple Leafs training camp on a professional tryout contract, something that came together recently as the team recognized there might be room on the roster.
"Obviously we're getting pretty close to camp and we have some opportunities, and he's looking for a chance to prove himself, so it's a pretty good fit," general manager Dave Nonis said Sunday night after the Maple Leafs' final rookie tournament game in London.
"I know Mason very well," Nonis said. "He's another option. He's an NHL forward, he's scored 25 goals in this league. He's only 27 years old. He's got great foot speed, which is something that will give Randy (Carlyle) some more options."
