Daniel Winnik is returning to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The unrestricted free agent signed a two-year contract with Toronto on Wednesday worth $4.5 million.

The Maple Leafs traded the forward to the Pittsburgh Penguins in February in exchange for Zach Sill, a 2015 fourth-round pick (Jesper Lindgren) and a 2016 second-round pick.

In 79 games between the two clubs, Winnik scored nine goals and 34 points while spending a lot of time on the penalty kill.
