The Globe and Mail is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs are granting forward Jason Allison a tryout.

Allison hasn't suited up for an NHL game since he last played for the Leafs during the 2005-06 season.

According to the Globe, the 34-year old centre approached the team some time over the summer regarding an NHL comeback. He will reportedly be joining the team in September, without a contract, for a tryout.

Allison had 60 points through his 66 games with the Leafs, including 43 assists.
