The Toronto Maple Leafs appear to have their eyes on James Reimer's potential replacement.

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported during "Saturday Headlines" that the Maple Leafs are the front-runner for goaltender Mantas Armalis.

According to Friedman: "A couple teams, Toronto believed to be among them, and Carolina, but Toronto is believed to be the favorite, for a Lithuanian, Swedish trained goaltender named Mantas Armalis."

The 23-year-old currently resides with Djurgardens IF of the Swedish Hockey League. In 34 games this season, Armalis has a 2.42 GAA and a .918 save percentage.

Armalis is certainly getting his looks, if not only because he is also a male model.
