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.
