The Maple Leafs have signed Adam Brooks to a two-year, two-way contract extension worth $1.45 million ($725K AAV).
Brooks provides the Maple Leafs with fourth-line centre depth for the next two seasons. The 24-year-old made his NHL debut this season, chipping in three assists in seven games. During his time with the Marlies, he tallied nine goals and 11 assists (20 points) in 29 games.
Brooks (illness) will be back in the Maple Leafs lineup on Monday.
Brooks missed Saturday's game vs. the Islanders but will replace Dmytro Timashov tonight vs. the Oilers. Since coming up form the Marlies, Brooks has one assist and one shot in three games while playing 7:05 ATOI.
Brooks will make his NHL debut on Saturday.
Brooks, who was a fourth-round pick in 2016, has eight goals and eight assists (16 points) in 20 AHL games this season. Brooks will replace Ilya Mikheyev in the lineup but will likely make his debut on the fourth line with Frederik Gauthier and Dmytro Timashov.
The Maple Leafs have recalled Adam Brooks from Toronto (AHL) on an emergency basis.
Trevor Moore will not play on Tuesday after taking a bump in practice on Monday. Brooks could make his NHL debut tonight but Dmytro Timashov is also available to take Moore's spot.
