The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Wednesday that the club has signed Travis Dermott
to a three-year entry level contract.
Dermott, 18, was drafted by the Maple Leafs in the second round (34th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.

He also led all OHL defencemen in playoff points with 17 (five goals, 12 assists) in 20 games.
