Clarke MacArthur, who became a free agent earlier this summer after the Atlanta Thrashers walked away from his arbitration decision, signed a one-year contract Saturday with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The 25-year-old forward split last season between the Thrashers and Buffalo Sabres, registering a career-high 35 points (16 goals, 19 assists). He was dealt to Atlanta on March 3 in exchange for third- and fourth-round picks in the 2010 Entry Draft.

MacArthur, a third-round pick by Buffalo in the 2003 Entry Draft, has played in 208 career regular-season NHL games, totaling 44 goals and 88 points. He scored a career-high 17 goals for the Sabres during the 2008-09 season.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
