TORONTO (CP) - John Pohl, who didn't cost the Toronto Maple Leafs as much as a bag of pucks, looks good enough to crack the lineup.

Pohl has a nose for the net, which he showed in slamming in a rebound and putting himself in position for several other scoring chances during a 5-1 pre-season win over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night.

Darcy Tucker, Mats Sundin, Aleksander Suglobov and Alexei Ponikarovsky supplied Toronto's other goals, while Jonathan Ferland scored for Montreal.

Pohl, a six-foot, 185-pound Minnesotan, led the Leafs' American Hockey League farm team with 75 points (36-39) in only 60 games last season. He scored three times in the seven NHL games he played, and he's got an excellent chance of landing one of the roster openings created by the departures of forwards Jason Allison, Eric Lindros, and Tie Domi.

Pohl was acquired from St. Louis for future considerations 13 months ago after two seasons with the Blues' AHL farm team in Worcester, Mass. He previously played at the University of Minnesota for four years.
