Sources tell TSN that former Maple Leaf Joe Nieuwendyk is scheduled to meet with Toronto general manager Cliff Fletcher this week to discuss joining the team's management group.

Fletcher's first attempt to bring Nieuwendyk on board was stopped by the Florida Panthers, who refused to give the Maple Leafs permission to speak Nieuwendyk before his contract as an advisor to Panthers general manager Jacques Martin expired on June 30.

Nieuwendyk, a three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Calgary Flames, Dallas Stars and New Jersey Devils, played 1,257 career games over 20 NHL seasons, scoring 564 goals and 1,126 points.

The Oshawa, Ontario native was drafted 27th overall by Fletcher's Flames in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft and spent the first nine seasons of his career in Calgary. He played for the Maple Leafs in 2003-04 before he and teammate Gary Roberts signed with the Panthers before the 2005-06 campaign.
