Maple Leafs sign defenceman Zach Bogosian to one-year, $1M contract

Jesse Fuchs and Brian Burke break down the latest acquisitions from around the league, including the additions the Toronto Maple Leafs have made.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Stanley Cup champion and free-agent defenceman Zach Bogosian to a one-year, $1-million contract, the team announced Saturday.

The 30-year-old helped the Tampa Bay Lightning to their second Cup in franchise victory late last month, notching four points in 20 post-season games as they triumphed over the Dallas Stars in the final.

Bogosian — the third pick in the 2008 NHL Draft — split the 2019-20 season between Buffalo and Tampa Bay, collecting five points in 19 games before being waived and having his contract terminated by the Sabres on Feb. 22. He signed with the Lightning a day later and added two assists in eight games down the stretch.

In 644 NHL games, with stints also in Atlanta and Winnipeg, Bogosian has recorded 196 points.
