The Toronto Maple Leafs are in the market to reinforce their forward corps prior to the trade deadline, TSN's Darren Dreger reported on Tuesday's edition of "Insider Trading."

"Management would like to bolster their forward group," Dreger said. "They'd like to give this group a little more depth and firepower, particularly in the middle of the lineup.

"As long as the Leafs continue to win, then I know (general manager Kyle) Dubas is going to try and bolster the group up front."

This season's trade deadline is set for April 12.

Toronto added several forwards this past offseason, including Joe Thornton, Wayne Simmonds, Travis Boyd, and Jimmy Vesey. Rookie winger Nick Robertson made the club at the start of the season, but has been limited to one NHL game due to an injury.

The Leafs sit first in the NHL with 36 points in 23 games. They also boast the league's top offense with 81 goals.
