The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Scott Sabourin to a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $250,000 in the AHL, per Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.

The 28-year-old had been with the organization on an AHL-only deal and was placed on waivers earlier Sunday.

The native of Orleans, Ont., had six points in 35 games with the Ottawa Senators last season, his lone pro campaign in the NHL.

The move comes after the revelation earlier Sunday that the Maple Leafs could be without power forward Wayne Simmonds for six weeks after he was hurt during the team's 5-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.
