Maple Leafs sign Jeremy Bracco to entry-level contract

Watch as Jeremy Bracco scores his seventh goal of the season for the Kitchener Rangers.

The Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Jeremy Bracco to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Tuesday.

Bracco was selected by the Maple Leafs in the second round (61st overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.

The 20-year-old began the 2016-17 campaign with the Kitchener Rangers but was traded to the Windsor Spitfires in early January. In 30 games with the Spitfires he has eight goals and 24 assists, a drop in production from the 51 points in 27 games he registered with the Rangers.

Bracco boasts some of the best hands in all of junior hockey and his skill set should, in theory, mesh beautifully with the young Maple Leafs roster as early as next season. The Freeport, N.Y., native played a vital role Team USA at the world juniors en route to winning a gold medal.
