The Toronto Maple Leafs have avoided arbitration with defenseman Carl Gunnarsson, with the sides agreeing to terms on a three-year contract. TSN's Darren Dreger is reporting it's worth $9.45 million.

The 26-year-old had one goal and 15 points in 37 regular-season games for the Maple Leafs in 2012-13 and an assist in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games.

A seventh-round pick (No. 194) in the 2007 NHL Draft, Gunnarsson has 12 goals and 69 points in 224 games for the Maple Leafs.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
