TORONTO SUN: Winger Devin Setoguchi will have his work cut out for him securing a roster spot with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Setoguchi will attend the Leafs upcoming training camp on a tryout basis.

WINNIPEG SUN: While the Jets made significant strides last season, they’ll have to work hard to improve on that performance.
