Rick Nash is willing to leave the Big Apple for the Big Smoke.

With the New York Rangers prepared to enter a rebuild, the team approached the veteran forward - who carries a modified no-trade clause - to provide a list of clubs to which he'd be willing to accept a trade.

Earlier reports indicated Canadian-bound playoff teams are among the 12 places Nash is willing to go, while TSN's Frank Seravalli has since confirmed the Toronto Maple Leafs are among his approved teams.

"I included the teams that I think have the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup and are also places I think would be good for my family," Nash told Larry Brooks of the New York Post. "And, yes, that does include teams in Canada. I'm not excluding that as a possibility."

The Toronto Maple Leafs forward has served largely as a healthy scratch this season - dressing in just 12 games - and hasn't seen game action since Dec. 31.

Subsequently, he's reportedly requested a trade, Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos said Saturday during Hockey Night in Canada's "Headlines" segment.

A move to the Maple Leafs would be a homecoming of sorts for Nash, who hails from nearby Brampton, Ontario.

The 33-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent who could provide playoff-bound teams, including the Maple Leafs, with some added size and scoring touch in a chase for the Stanley Cup.

Nash has tallied 17 goals and 10 assists through 56 games this season.

Seravalli adds the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators are among the frontrunners to acquire Nash.
