Leafs reportedly decide the fate of Noah Gregor

Looks like his time as a Leaf is coming to a close.

It goes without saying that the roster of the Toronto Maple Leafs that hits the ice this fall will look different than the one that skated off the TD Garden ice in dejection after being ousted in the Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Boston Bruins yet again. 

Among the key decisions for Leafs general manager Brad Treliving will be the futures of top players like John Tavares and Mitch Marner along with pending free agents like Tyler Bertuzzi, Max Domi, Joel Edmundson and T.J. Brodie. But while those decisions have yet to be worked out, it appears as though the organization has decided the fate of one bottom-six forward. 

Noah Gregor, who was signed to a one-year deal worth $775,000 after earning a job with the team following a training camp tryout, appears to be the odd man out.

"With the emergence of Cowan next season combined with Gregor's declining production and role in the second half of the season (one goal in his last 35 games), it feels unlikely the Leafs extend a qualifying offer. He was known to be a good teammate in Toronto and his speed and attitude alone should help him catch on with another NHL team easily enough next season."

Having already played with the San Jose Sharks during his NHL career, Gregor appeared in 63 regular season games with the Leafs in 2023-24, scoring six goals with six assists. He also played in a pair of postseason games for the Leafs against the Bruins, but was held pointless.
