The Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to shed the final season of goaltender Matt Murray's contract for salary cap relief, Chris Johnston of NorthStar Bets reports.

Murray is on Toronto's books for $4.6 million in 2023-24 before he hits unrestricted free agency next summer. The Maple Leafs' preferred route is a trade, per Johnston, but the club may also be able to use the league's second buyout window later this summer if a deal doesn't come to fruition.
