Leafs Re-sign F Connor Brown


The Toronto Maple Leafs have locked up the last remaining free agent by signing F Connor Brown to a brand-new extension Saturday evening.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Connor Brown to a three-year contract worth $6.3 million.

While Brown didn’t court the same spotlight as some of the Leafs’ other first-year players last season, the 23-year-old is coming off an impressive rookie campaign in his own right. After getting a taste of the NHL in seven games late in the 2015-16 season, Brown tallied 36 points (20 goals, 16 assists) in 82 regular-season games and added one assist in six playoff games through his first full season.

Toronto can now head into training camp without any contract negotiations looming over their heads.
