Steve Staios assisting Hockey OPs for Leafs.

Steve Staios was spotted walking around Toronto’s draft hotel headquarters on Friday with a Maple Leaf golf shirt on, but he’s not coming as a player.

The team has some sort of off-ice role in mind for the 16-year NHL veteran defenceman, who played his 1,000th game at the end of the 2011-12 season.

“He could be scouting for us,” said senior vice-president of hockey operations Dave Nonis. “We’re looking at a couple of things.”

The Hamilton native was set to retire last year when agent Pat Morris made a strong case to have the New York Islanders give him a chance at camp. Staois stayed on for his milestone game, having played primarily in Western Canada for Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. He was originally a draft pick of the St. Louis Blues.

It’s not known when or if the Leafs will be replacing Rick Dudley, who was on their player personnel staff before joining the Canadiens’ front office as assistant general manager.

He's taken a few pucks to the face though. Not sure if we should be worried about his judgement.

I'm definitely not his buddy or friend, but I met Staios (and Stamkos who has been attending for years) at the yearly "Macedonian Golf Open" about 2-3 years ago. Hopefully he'll be there again this Wednesday. If he's part of the Leafs team, and I bump into him. I'll try to dig for for F.A. or trade info lol.

I can't wait to see Stamkos again!

love how hockey people take care of their friends. without even having a job with the team, they fly him to pittsburgh and give him a golf shirt, and let him hang around the team. then they'll create a job to give him a salary. how do we get in on this?

Well, I think the first thing you would need to do is to actually have friends.
