"In last week’s Headlines, we discussed the interest in Lithuanian-born, Swedish-trained goalie Mantas Armalis. Carolina and Toronto are among the teams looking at him, with the Maple Leafs believed to be the favourite to get him. A couple other Europeans: Vadim Shipachev. Mentioned him earlier this season, a 28-year-old centre. Montreal was among the interested parties. It’s almost time for the annual Vladimir Sobotka watch, too."
