Jonas Gustavsson Has Signed With Toronto per Sportsnet

Per one of their Swedish sources.

An announcement is expected as early as today as "The Monster" signed off on a 1-year, $900,000 to start the 09-10 season backing up Vesa Toskola.

I'm sure additional details will follow. I have checked TSN to see if they've picked on this story and they now have.

I'm sure the Stars would have loved for him to not wait so long as they missed out on several nice potential backups through free agency. But obviously, their scouts in Sweden as well as Les Jackson saw something in the kid to convince Nieuwendyk to wait him out. And he was going to disappoint one team as it was, anyway.

Time to turn the page and look for a backup in free agency.
