07:18 AM ET 07.26 | Mikhail Grabovski will soon close on his next NHL home, and he may have some choices. Sources close to Grabovski's situation tell TSN Hockey Analyst Aaron Ward that he is down to choosing between three NHL teams for next season. Ward adds that contrary to reports, the Winnipeg Jets are not among them. The Toronto Maple Leafs bought out Grabovski on July 4 after putting the veteran forward on unconditional waivers and the move made him an unrestricted free agent. The buyout also freed up $5.5 million of cap space for the Leafs. The 29-year-old had four years remaining on his $27.5-million contract, which he signed in March 2012. Grabovski struggled on the scoresheet this past season, recording just nine goals and seven assists in 48 games. In 367 career games, Grabovski has 94 goals and 123 assists.

It's July 26th. This must be one of those very slow white Bronco chases.

As a studio guy I like Aaron Ward...compared to what else is offered he is quite tolerable.

The exception being when he's on the Big 10 Network talking about Michigan...then he sometimes loses touch with reality.

So he's not a Ward of the state.

Well played...

Wanted : whiny centreman who can only get major minutes as #2 on a bad team.

Immature, skates with head down, little playmaking ability, ability to take frightening hits. Likes to call coaches "idiots" that do not bestow him with #2 minutes.

Will come cheap.

No, he is a (Burt) Ward of the Batman.
