Maple Leafs sign forward Ondrej Kase to one-year $1.25M deal

Watch as Ondrej Kase gives the Ducks a goal against the Penguins after taking mere seconds to deke around Casey DeSmith off the draw.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have inked forward Ondrej Kase to a one-year deal worth $1.25 million, the club announced Friday.

The 25-year-old, a 20-goal-scorer with the Anaheim Ducks just a few years ago, spent the past season and a half with the Bruins after being flipped to Boston in the deal that sent David Backes to Anaheim.

Hampered by injuries, Kase suited up for only nine games as a Bruin over the past two campaigns, posting one assist in that span.

He was not qualified by the Bruins earlier this month, leaving him open to an acquisition by a new club.

Originally a seventh-round pick back in 2014, Kase has 97 total points through 207 career NHL tilts.
