|News: Kontiola knows he's in a battle for a job with the Leafs, but he's prepared to play whatever role the team sees fit to win a spot, reports the National Post. "This isn't a guy that we've got pencilled in on the first line or the fourth line," said general manager Dave Nonis. "He's got the skill set that he can play multiple positions. If we need a guy to play in the top-6, would he fit into that position? Yes, there's no reason not to think that."
Impact: His role will be up to Randy Carlyle, but it's clear the team is already impressed with the 30-year-old forward. "This is one of the more motivated people I've ever seen," continued Nonis. "He spent close to half a million dollars of his own money to get out of a [KHL] contract to come over here and play. Not a lot of guys would do that." Kontiola is a finesse player who led all scorers with eight goals and 16 points in 10 games at the 2013 world championship. And he scored the highly-touted Evgeny Kuznetsov on his KHL squad last season. Keep an eye on him in camp -- he might provide value as a sleeper.
