According to TSN's Chris Johnston, newly-hired Toronto Maple Leafs General Manager Brad Treliving won't be fully involved in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft.

Johnston says that the reason why is that it was part of the conditions set by the Calgary Flames before they officially granted the Maple Leafs permission to talk with Treliving about the vacancy last week.

"One thing to watch with Brad Treliving about to officially be unveiled as #leafs GM: Sources say that he won't be a full participant at the upcoming NHL Draft as part of the conditions placed by the Flames while granting him permission to speak with Toronto about the position." Johnston said in a tweet.

The Maple Leafs currently hold three picks in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft. 28th overall in the first round, as well as a fifth and sixth round picks.


Treliving, 53, spent the last nine years as the Calgary Flames General Manager and prior to that was an assistant GM with the Arizona Coyotes.

The Penticton (British Columbia) native has a lot on his plate this summer when it comes to the free agent market as well as what to do with Head Coach Sheldon Keefe. The Maple Leafs currently have ten unrestricted free agents on their NHL roster most notably, Ryan O'Reilly and Michael Bunting. Meanwhile, goaltender Ilya Samsonov is set to become a restricted free agent and getting him under contract will be a top priority for Brad Treliving.
