LONDON, Ont. -- 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.

Raymond, 27, spent the last five-plus seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. He has 80 goals and 98 assists in 374 career NHL games.

Nonis drafted Raymond in the second round of the 2005 draft while with Vancouver.

"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."

Raymond could fill a need for the Maple Leafs on the third line, where they have a hole after trading Matt Frattin to the Los Angeles Kings.
