Free agent centre Mikhail Grabovski is close to landing in a new NHL home.

Sources close to Grabovski's situation tell TSN Hockey Analyst Aaron Ward that he is down to choosing between three NHL teams for next season.

Ward adds that contrary to reports, the Winnipeg Jets are not among them.

The Toronto Maple Leafs bought out Grabovski on July 4 after putting the veteran forward on unconditional waivers and the move made him an unrestricted free agent. The buyout also freed up $5.5 million of cap space for the Leafs.

The 29-year-old had four years remaining on his $27.5-million contract, which he signed in March 2012. Grabovski struggled on the scoresheet this past season, recording just nine goals and seven assists in 48 games.

In 367 career games, Grabovski has 94 goals and 123 assists.
