Leafs expected to meet with former Canucks general manager Dave Nonis

TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs are expected to meet with former Vancouver Canucks GM Dave Nonis next week, a source confirmed to The Canadian Press on Friday.

Nonis was fired by the Canucks on April 14.

The Leafs have been looking for a general manager to succeed John Ferguson since Cliff Fletcher took over the team as interim GM on Jan. 22. It’s not clear at this point whether Nonis would be hired on as GM or in some other front-office capacity.
