(Toronto) The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Max Domi for one season.
Aged 28, Domi will receive 3 millionUS. He scored 20 goals and added 36 assists in 80 games with the Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars last season. In 19 playoff games with the Stars, he had 13 points, including three goals.
The Winnipeg native is the son of Tie Domi, who played for the Maple Leafs from 1995-2006. The vindicator was a crowd favorite.
Domi will be on his seventh NHL roster, having also played for the Arizona Coyotes, Montreal Canadiens, Columbus Blue Jackets and Carolina Hurricanes.
The Leafs have been active in the free agent market. They signed winger Tyler Bertuzzi for a year and 5.1 million, in addition to offering contracts to defender John Klingberg and striker Ryan Reaves.
Separately, the Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Marc Staal to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.
General manager Daniel Brière announced the hiring on Monday, hours after he awarded contracts to forward Garnet Hathaway and center Ryan Poehling, a former Montreal Canadiens.
Last season, Staal helped the Florida Panthers reach the Stanley Cup Finals. During the team’s run, Staal has played almost 21 minutes per game. In the regular season, he appeared in 82 games for the Panthers and collected 15 points.
