The agent for highly touted goaltending prospect Johan Gustavsson was on Hockeycentral@Noon Friday and said the Swedish free-agent will begin visiting four teams next week.
“(Gustavsson) is going to go to Colorado, Dallas, Toronto and San Jose,” said agent Joe Resnick.
“I’ve had discussions with all the teams and we’ve definetly spoken to them to do our due diligence to see what they are willing to offer. At the same time we want to see the comfort level between the organization and Jonas,” said Resnick.
In terms of Gustavsson choosing the Maple Leafs over the other three teams, Resnick said that the decision to hire Francois Allaire as goaltending coach would be a positive factor. Allaire is most known for working with Patrick Roy and J.S. Giguere.
