Veteran Trevor Kidd of the Florida Panthers is expected to be claimed off waivers by Toronto by the end of the week, Sportsnet has learned. He is said to be close to reaching a deal with the Leafs.

The Toronto Maple Leafs may have found a goaltender to back up Ed Belfour.

With Corey Schwab leaving for New Jersey and Tom Barrasso aging, the Maple Leafs are hoping Trevor Kidd will be a solid backup for Eddie the Eagle.
