The Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Noah Gregor to a professional tryout, the team announced Wednesday.
Gregor, 25, tallied 10 goals and 17 points in 57 games last season with the San Jose Sharks. He became an unrestricted free agent when the Sharks didn’t tender him a qualifying offer in June.
The Edmonton, Alberta native was drafted by San Jose in the 2016 fourth round. In 178 games over parts of four seasons with the Sharks, Gregor collected 26 goals and 51 points.
Gregor played for Canada at the 2022 World Championships, where he scored two goals and three points. Shane Doan – who’s now a special advisor with the Maple Leafs – was Canada’s general manager for the tournament.
Zach Aston-Reese participated in Toronto’s training camp and preseason in 2022-23 on a professional tryout before earning a contract. He played 77 games with the Maple Leafs last season.
Toronto’s over the cap by $2.9 million with a 23-man roster, according to CapFriendly. The Maple Leafs have three contract slots available.
