The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Ryan Tverberg to a three-year entry-level contract with an average annual value of $851,667. The contract will begin in the 2023-24 season.

Tverberg has 15 goals and 30 points in 35 games with the University of Connecticut this season. He will join the Maple Leafs’ AHL affiliate for the remainder of the season and playoffs.

“The Maple Leafs organization is very thankful to the University of Connecticut,” said Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas in a statement. “Ryan’s development through his three seasons with the Huskies and subsequent signing today is a testament to the tireless work of head coach Mike Cavanaugh and all the staff within the UConn men’s hockey program.”

Tverberg, 21, was named to the NCAA Hockey East First All-Star team and nominated for the Hobey Baker Award last season.

He was drafted by Toronto in the seventh round of the 2020 NHL Draft.
