TORONTO - Tomas Kaberle is back on this side of the pond, perusing the help-wanted section for veteran defencemen with a Stanley Cup ring.

The 36-year-old maintains that boyish look from his rookie days with the Maple Leafs, when he turned a training camp chance under Pat Quinn into a 13-year run in Toronto. But though he follows his old team after moving to Boston, Carolina and Montreal and spending last year with his hometown team of Kladno and the Czech Olympians, the Leafs aren’t on his radar.

“I might have a tryout on the table, but not in Ontario,” Kaberle said Monday at a hockey camp of NHLers run by the BioSteel high performance drink company. “We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks. I feel good, with no injuries (a charmed career in that sense). I still enjoy the game and that’s they key. It would be nice to play a couple of more years.”

Kaberle ranked 11th in Leafs points with 520 when he was traded to Boston for Cup insurance. Once half of the dynamic offensive duo with Bryan McCabe, Kaberle is now tracking the two fleet-footed young blueliners on the Leafs, Jake Gardiner and Morgan Rielly.
