Rumour: Mark Scheifele could be headed home to the Maple Leafs

After an incredible career with the Winnipeg Jets, it appears forward Mark Scheifele is on his way out, so where better to end up than with his home town team?

A Jets legend


Over 12-years, 723 games and 645 points with the Winnipeg Jets, Mark Scheifele officially requested a trade at seasons end, and while it may not happen before the season, it's a matter of time until a deal is done.

There has reportedly been a lot of interest in No. 55 around the league, but with his contract up at the end of the year, the Jets are likely going to be limited in the return they get for him.

One team that has now been linked to him more than others are the Toronto Maple Leafs, who are looking to go all-in for a Stanley Cup run, and adding Scheifele to their stacked top-six could be a way to go about that.

At this point, the salary cap situation will be a big hinderance, but after what we've seen from Brad Treliving this off-season, he's not scared to be aggressive, so keep an eye on this link, whether it be before the season begins or come trade deadline.
