The Toronto Maple Leafs have avoided arbitration with restricted free agent forward Peter Holland.
Holland signed a one-year deal with the Maple Leafs worth $1.3 million, the team announced Monday.
An arbitration hearing was set for Monday. The 25-year-old was seeking a $2.1-million award, while the team countered with a $900,000 offer.
Holland totalled nine goals and 27 points in 65 games with the Maple Leafs in 2015-16.
The Anaheim Ducks originally selected Holland in the first round (15th overall) at the 2009 NHL Draft.
