Brandon Prust says he's always wanted to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The veteran forward signed a professional tryout with the club on Monday night. "Growing up a Leafs fan, I know that's kind of where my heart is," said Prust. "I've always wanted to play for the Leafs. I figure this will be a great opportunity for me. Wendel (Clark) was my man. I always want to play like him and be like him. He had skill, he was tough as nails and he was a great leader. That's the guy I idolized growing up as a Leafs fan. I've watched Toronto's playoff runs and I know all about their history. To be a part of it will be amazing."
