TORONTO — Roman Polak is back with the Maple Leafs.
Toronto signed the free agent defenceman to a one-year contract on Saturday. Term of the deal were not immediately available.
Polak played 55 games last year with the Leafs before being dealt in a Feb. 22 trade with the San Jose Sharks. Centre Nick Spaling was also apart of the deal that saw Toronto receive second-round picks in 2017 and 2018 as well as forward Raffi Torres.
The 30-year-old Polak had one goal and 12 assists with Toronto and three assists in 24 regular season games for San Jose.
Polak didn’t record a point in 24 post-season games for the Sharks, who fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games during the Stanley Cup final.
