The Toronto Maple Leafs are apparently looking to move forward Nic Petan, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported on "Saturday Headlines."

With defenseman Travis Dermott and forward Zach Hyman nearing respective returns from injured reserve, the club will need to clear players off its roster to become cap compliant.

Petan has appeared in three of the Maple Leafs' nine games this season, during which he's recorded one assist.

Toronto acquired Petan from the Winnipeg Jets in February for forward Par Lindholm. The 24-year-old then inked a two-year, $1.55-million deal with the Maple Leafs in March.

The British Columbia native has tallied six goals and 25 points in 116 games since debuting in 2015-16.
