Maple Leafs sign Swedish defenceman Viktor Loov to three-year entry-level deal

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs signed defenceman Viktor Loov to a three-year entry-level contract Wednesday.

The 21-year-old native of Sodertalje, Sweden had 12 points (five goals, seven assists) and 20 penalty minutes in 42 games for Modo of the Swedish Hockey League this past season.

The six-foot-three 190-pound blue-liner was selected by the Maple Leafs in the seventh round (No. 209 overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
