Toronto Maple Leafs

The Maple Leafs agreed to terms with Roman Polak on a one-year deal worth $1.1M.

Polak appeared in 75 games with the Maple Leafs last season, posting just 11 points (4G / 7A) and averaging 17:55 TOI/GM—including a team-high 2:54 TOI/GM on the penalty kill. The Maple Leafs have been leaning heavily on Ron Hainsey and Nikita Zaitsev on the PK, so Polak has likely been signed to ease that burden on those two.

The Maple Leafs signed Roman Polak to a one-year contract.

Polak had 13 points (1G / 12A) in 55 games with the Maple Leafs before they traded him to San Jose prior to last year’s NHL Trade Deadline. After the deal he only added three more assists, but the 16 points was the second highest total of his NHL career. He is known more for his bear-like strength and defensive abilities opposed to what he can or can’t do with the puck.

The Sharks have acquired Roman Polak and Nick Spaling from the Maple Leafs for Raffi Torres, a 2017 second round pick and 2018 second round pick.

Polak is a pending unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, but provides the Sharks’ with depth on the blueline for a playoff push. Polak has 13 points (1G / 12A) in 55 games, led the Maple Leafs in blocked shots (102) and was second in hits (220).

Polak (knee) skated on his own for the first time since suffering the injury.

Polak has been sidelined with a strained left knee since November 22nd. He was scheduled to miss four weeks, which would put him on track to return a week from tomorrow. Since he just returned today, it looks like he will be out passed that original timetable, but this is a positive sign for the Maple Leafs’ blue line.
