The Maple Leafs have signed Cody Ceci to a one-year $4.5M contract.
The Maple Leafs have signed Alex Kerfoot to a four-year deal worth $14 million ($3.5M AAV).
The Maple Leafs have acquired Alex Kerfoot, Tyson Barrie and a 2020 sixth-round from the Avalanche for Nazem Kadri, Calle Rosen and a 2020 third-round pick.
The Maple Leafs have acquired Tyson Barrie, Alex Kerfoot and a 2020 sixth-round pick from the Avalanche for Nazem Kadri, Calle Rosen and a 2020 third-round pick.
The Maple Leafs have signed Kevin Gravel to a one-year, $700K contract.
The Maple Leafs have signed Nick Shore to a one-year deal worth $750K.
The Maple Leafs have signed Jason Spezza to a one-year contract worth $700K.
The Maple Leafs have acquired Ben Harpur, Cody Ceci, Aaron Luchuk and a 2020 third-round pick from the Senators for Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown and Michael Carcone.
Harpur is a huge defenseman (6-foot-6, 222 lbs) who plays a physical brand of hockey. Harpur averaged 1.7 hits and 1.4 blocked shots per game in 2018-19 but contributes very little offensively—1G, 4A in 51 games. Harpur could potentially be a third-pairing defenseman for Toronto in 2020 but they have a number of young defensemen in the pipelines who will be looking to push Harpur out.
The Maple Leafs have acquired Aaron Luchuk, Cody Ceci, Ben Harpur and a 2020 third-round pick from the Senators for Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown and Michael Carcone.
Luchuk was an undrafted free agent who signed with Ottawa after his fifth year in the OHL, where he amassed 50 goals and 65 assists (115 points) in 68 games between the Windsor Spitfires and Barrie Colts. In his first professional seaosn, Luchuk split his time between the AHL and ECHL—picking up nine points (4G / 5A) in 27 games with Belleville (AHL). He will likely report to the Toronto Marlies to start 2020.
The Maple Leafs have acquired Cody Ceci, Ben Harpur, Aaron Luchuk and a 2020 third-round pick from the Senators for Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown and Michael Carcone.
Ceci is a pending RFA but the Maple Leafs were able to move some big money and term by shipping Zaitsev to Ottawa. Ceci is a former first-round pick but has never reached the potential he flashed in the OHL. He is coming off of a 26-point (7G / 19A) season, which matches his career-high for points.
The Maple Leafs have signed Martin Marincin to a one-year contract worth $700K.
Marincin served as an extra defenseman for most of the 2018-19 season, playing just 24 NHL games and eight AHL games. The 27-year-old had one goal and four assists (five points) with the Maple Leafs and will likely serve as their No.7 defenseman in 2019-20.
The Maple Leafs have signed Michael Hutchinson to a one-year contract worth $700K.
Hutchinson started the 2018-19 season with the Panthers before being acquired by Toronto where he was 14-7-1 with a 2.70 GAA and .910 SV% in 23 games with the Marlies (AHL). He appeared in five games with the Maple Leafs, going 2-3-0 with a 2.64 GAA and .914 SV% and has a legitimate chance at being Frederik Andersen’s backup in 2019-20.
The Maple Leafs have signed Andreas Johnsson to a four-year, $13.6M ($3.4M AAV) contract extension.
The Maple Leafs have found a seventh-round gem in Johnsson. The 24-year-old had 20 goals and 23 assists (43 points) in 73 games during his first full NHL season. Johnsson also added one goal and three assists in seven playoff games and should be locked into a top-6 role on a line with Auston Matthews in 2020.
The Maple Leafs have signed Kasperi Kapanen to a three-year, $9.6M ($3.2M AAV) contract extension.
During his first full season with the Maple Leafs, Kapanen registered 20 goals and 24 assists (44 points) in 78 games. The 22-year-old was quiet during the postseason but should be able to build off of strong start to his NHL career. However, Kapanen’s ceiling may be limited because he is destined to play third-line minutes on a deep Toronto roster.
Dermott will undergo shoulder surgery and is expected to miss at least six months.
Dermott will undergo shoulder surgery on Friday and will miss the start of the 2019-20 season. Based on the original timetable, Dermott is not expected to be back until early-November, so look for him to miss at least one month, which will allow the Maple Leafs to get a look at a few of their young defensemen.

The Maple Leafs have signed Teemu Kivihalme to a one-year, entry-level contract.
Kivihalme, 23, was originally a fifth-round pick (No.140 overall) in 2013 but played three years at Colorado College (2015 to 2017) before playing two years with Karpat (Finnish Liiga), where he was tied for fifth on the team in assists (21) and seventh in points (30).
The Maple Leafs have signed Ilya Mikheyev to a one-year, entry-level contract.
Mikheyev was a highly coveted forward, who had 23 goals and 22 assists (45 points) in 62 games with Omsk Avangard of the KHL. The 24-year-old is 6-foot-2 and 190 lbs and will bring a little size to the Maple Leafs forward group in 2019-20.
Andersen stopped 37 of 40 shots in the Maple Leafs 4-2 loss to the Bruins in Game 6. Andersen was sensational yet again and kept Toronto in Game 6 but they fell just short and head back to Boston for Game 7. Andersen has a .944 SV% in the three games in Boston in this series but is 0-3 with a 4.51 GAA and .840 SV% in three career Game 7 starts.
