The Maple Leafs have signed Nicholas Robertson to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Robertson was selected with the No.53 overall pick in 2019 after scoring 27 goals with 28 assists (55 points) in 54 games with the Peterborough Petes (OHL).
The Maple Leafs have re-signed Mitch Marner to a six-year contract worth $65.358 million ($10.893M AAV).
After just one day of training camp, the Maple Leafs and Marner were able to come to terms on a six-year contract extension that makes him the seventh highest paid player in the NHL (by AAV). Marner had 94 points (26G / 68A) last season and comes into 2020 with 90-point potential as a staple next to John Tavares.
The Maple Leafs have acquired Jordan Schmaltz from the Blues in exchange for Andreas Borgman.
Schmaltz is a former first-round pick (No.25 overall in 2012) but has appeared in just 42 career NHL games since. Last season, Schmaltz had nine points (1G / 8A) in 36 AHL games and just two assists in 20 NHL games with the Blues. Schmaltz will likely start the 2020 season with the Toronto Marlies (AHL).
The Maple Leafs have signed Tyler Gaudet to a one-year contract.
Gaudet had 25 points (8G / 17A) in 50 games with Milwaukee (AHL) last season. Gaudet has appeared in just 20 NHL games since turning pro in 2014. The 26-year-old will start 2020 in the AHL.
The Maple Leafs have signed Garrett Wilson to a one-year contract.
Wilson split the 2019 between Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) and Pittsburgh (NHL). The 28-year-old had two goals and six assists (eight points) in 50 games with the Penguins—the first eight points of his NHL career (34 previous games with the Panthers). Wilson will start next year in the AHL.
The Maple Leafs have signed Kasse Kossila to a two-year contract.
Kossila spend most of the 2019 season in the AHL, where he had 14 goals and 21 assists (35 points) in 44 games with San Diego. The 26-year-old has two goals and one assist in 19 career NHL games (all with Anaheim). He will start 2020 with the Marlies.
The Maple Leafs have signed Pontus Aberg to a one-year contract.
Aberg is a former second-round pick of the Predators but Nashville gave up on him in 2018 and he ended up playing in Anaheim and Minnesota last year where he totalled 12 goals and 13 assists (25 points) in 59 games. It’s tough to envision Aberg making the Maple Leafs opening night roster but he could be an extra or one of the first AHL call-ups given his NHL experience.
The Maple Leafs have signed Kenny Agostino to a two-year contract.
Agostino has been a prolific AHL scorer throughout the years but has not been able to find the same success at the NHL-level. However, in 2019 he set career-highs in games played (63), goals (6) and assists (18) with the Canadiens and Devils. Agostino will likely start 2020 with the Marlies.
The Maple Leafs have acquired David Clarkson and a 2020 fourth-round pick from the Golden Knights for Garret Sparks.
Clarkson has a career-ending injury and will never play again in the NH. Trading Sparks and picking up Clarkson’s contract, which will be moved to LTIR, provides the Maple Leafs with a little more wiggle room in terms of cap-space. Michal Neuvirth has been signed to a PTO and could land the backup job in Toronto with Sparks now in Vegas.
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.
