Finnish free agent goaltending prospect Jussi Rynnas, who attracted a lot of interest amongst NHL teams this season, has chosen Toronto as his destination.

The Maple Leafs are expected to finalize the two year, two-way contract with the goaltender later today.

The 22-year-old Rynnas is slated to play in the Maple Leafs' minor league system next season.

''In situations like this, you tell them about the positives of your organization and you're honest with them and you let them decide,'' Dallas Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk told The Dallas Morning News. ''He decided Toronto was best for him.''

The Stars, Flyers, Canadiens, Coyotes and Leafs were all thought to be pursuing the young netminder.
