The Toronto Maple Leafs are giving Brandon Prust a shot, reportedly inviting the forward to training camp on a PTO, according to James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail.

Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello reportedly met with Prust over the summer and sees no downside to the move.

Last offseason, Prust was traded from the Montreal Canadiens to the Vancouver Canucks, where he played 35 games, contributing one goal and seven assists. He also scored seven points in nine games with the AHL’s Utica Comets.

Prust will be joined on a PTO by defenseman Raman Hrabarenka, who had five goals and four assists in 47 games in the AHL last season.

Leafs camp is set to begin Sept. 22 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
