"He plays a high-pressure, puck-pursuit game and his battle level is something we have been impressed with, especially against older players. We are excited for him to join our organization."

Ben Harpur could be in the lineup again for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Ottawa may decide to go with seven blueliners because Erik Karlsson and Cody Ceci are playing hurt. Karlsson and Ceci didn't finish Sunday's contest, so another defenseman in the lineup would serve as some insurance. Coach Guy Boucher is deciding between playing Harpur, Colin White or Chris Kelly.

William Nylander was named the tournament MVP at the 2017 World Hockey Championship.

Sweden won the gold medal over Canada on Sunday. Nylander finished the tournament with seven goals and 14 points in 10 games. The 21-year-old forward spent some time at center on the world stage, but the Leafs still intend for him to play on the wing next season. That should work out just fine for Nylader if he continues to play alongside Auston Matthews.

Dominic Toninato can become an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 16 if he doesn't sign with the Maple Leafs.

"Dom's a good player. Will teams be interested? Yes. There will be many teams interested in him," said agent Neil Sheehy. "The process right now is working with the Leafs. They hold his rights till Aug. 16. They have a lot of things that they're trying to figure out." The two sides plan to speak again on July 3, but Sheehy added that Toninato is not interested in an AHL deal. The fifth-round pick of the Leafs in 2012 had 29 points in 42 games with the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2016-17.

Coach Guy Boucher wants to see a better effort from his skaters in front of goalie Craig Anderson in Game 6 on Tuesday night.

"The first three games, he was outstanding," Boucher said. "The last two games, I don't think we've played well enough in front of him to be able to win the game. (Sunday), I took him out just to stall the game and then put him back in, but it was one of those games. It wasn't going to happen, so I took him out of there." Boucher also praised Anderson for his play all year and added "he's been able to close two series solid, and that's why he's our No. 1." He allowed four goals on just 14 shots in Game 5 in 18:32 of action, so he will have to be much better himself in order to force Game 7.
