It appears that Jhonas Enroth has found a new home.

According to Swedish news outlet, the free agent goaltender will reportedly sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs. This would provide depth and competition at the position.

This move would not be a surprise, as the Leafs are in the market for an experienced backup after sending Jonathan Bernier to the Anaheim Ducks. The team currently has goaltenders Frederik Andersen, Garret Sparks and Antoine Bibeau on the roster.

While Enroth does not come with the highest wealth of experience, he is somewhat of a journeyman after being thrust into numerous different situations. The native of Stockholm, Sweden played a career high 37 games for the Buffalo Sabres in 2014-15 recording 13 wins. He spent last year with the Los Angeles Kings, playing in 16 games with a 7-5-1 recording career bests in goals against average (2.17), save percentage (.922) and shutouts (2).

In 147 career games Enroth sports a record of 50-66-15 with a stellar 2.80 goals against average and .911 save percentage during the regular season and seven shutouts.
