Maple Leafs sign Kadri to two-year deal on eve of start of training camp

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Nazem Kadri to a contract on the eve of training camp.

Kadri, a restricted free agent centre whose lack of a deal became one of the biggest story lines of the off-season, got a two-year deal reportedly worth $5.8 million.

Kadri had 18 goals and 26 assists in 48 games last season, his first full one in the NHL. He was originally believed to be seeking a longer deal but wound up with a so-called "bridge" contract.

Kadri has 26 goals and 37 assists in 99 career NHL games.

Defenceman Cody Franson, also a restricted free agent, remained unsigned as of Tuesday night.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
