The Toronto Maple Leafs will reportedly sign Ron Hainsey to a two-year contract.

The 36-year-old opened the season with the Carolina Hurricanes, but he was eventually traded to the Penguins. With Pittsburgh, Hainsey managed to win the Stanley Cup this spring. He finished 2016-17 with four goals and 17 points in 72 games. He'll be a good mentor to Toronto's youngsters.

Ron Hainsey will get his name engraved on the Stanley Cup.

Hainsey, a 14-year NHL veteran, had never played in a playoff game until this season, a span of 907 games. But he was dealt to the Penguins from Carolina at the deadline and was a vital part of the Penguins Cup run. He ended up with eight points in 25 games and was second Sunday in TOI trailing only Brian Dumoulin on the Penguins.

Ron Hainsey is thrilled that he has a chance to have his name engraved on the Stanley Cup.

The 15-year veteran had never even played in the postseason until this year but the defenseman has found the right fit with the Penguins. "I don’t think I’ve gone out and sunk teams for 14 years previous to this year," Hainsey said. "Just the teams, that’s the way they’ve gone. You go out and play every game hoping to win it, at the end of the year you add up the points, top 16 teams get in, the other guys don’t. I’m very appreciative of this opportunity this year and it’s been great. As I said, we’re close to something pretty amazing." Hainsey has a goal and five points this postseason.

Ron Hainsey scored his first career playoff goal in Game 4.

He has registered two points in the last two games of the series. The 36-year-old rearguard is finally getting the chance to play in his first Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Apr 20 - 5:14 PM

Ron Hainsey is looking forward to finally playing in his first NHL playoff game next week.

The 36-year-old defenseman currently holds the record for the most career games without playing in the post-season at 907 but all that will change when he suits up for Game 1 against Columbus. "I’m ready," Hainsey said. "It was great to lock up home ice on Thursday. We have a week to get prepared and get ourselves fully focused on Columbus. I’m very excited to get going and be part of what we hopefully can turn into a great run here." He has three assists in 15 games this season so he should be a late pick in a deep playoff pool if you think the Penguins are going far into the post-season.
