Turco not coming to the Leafs
If Marty Turco is going to find a job in the National Hockey League, apparently it won’t be with the Maple Leafs.
“No interest,” Leafs general manager Brian Burke said in an e-mail on Tuesday night.
There were reports that the Leafs reached out to Turco, who is a free agent.
The 36-year-old Turco has an NHL career record of 273-165-66 with the Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars.
Last season, Turco was 11-11-3 with the Blackhawks with a 3.02 goals-against average and an .897 save percentage.
There remains no definitive timetable for James Reimer’s return to the Leafs lineup. Reimer has been suffering from concussion-like symptoms since he was bowled over by the Montreal Canadiens’ Brian Gionta on Oct. 22.
