Leo Komarov is expected to have a larger role with the Maple Leafs this coming season.
"Leo offers a lot more than even we got out of him two years ago," GM Dave Nonis said. "He's a better player offensively and he's done that on the world stage. ... He can play up and down the lineup. I don't see him as just a six-minute banger. Some people don't enjoy the way he plays against them, but he was well liked by our team." Nonis traveled all the way to Finland to speak with Komarov before free agency and the pesky forward spoke frequently about his preference to return to the Maple Leafs. Jul 2 - 10:13 AM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Leo Komarov to a four-year/$11.8 million contract.

The Leafs really missed his tenacity last season as he returned to the KHL to play one season for Moscow Dynamo as Toronto could not match his salary. Komarov wanted to come back to Toronto and he got his wish. He will see time on the third line as an energy player and serve as a pest to the other teams. It was an ingredient that was missing from the Leafs in 2013-14.
Jul 1 - 2:26 PM

Leo Komarov has reportedly had contract discussions with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The pesky winger made it known that he would like to return to the NHL next season and that Toronto was his first choice. If something isn't worked out with the Leafs then Komarov should be able to find a job elsewhere, as he racks up hits and is a solid penalty killer.

Leo Komarov's agent, Mark Gandler, said his client will play in the NHL next season and he's looking for a long-term deal.

According to Gandler, the Toronto Maple Leafs are still Komarov's first choice after he played 42 games with the club during the lockout-shortened season. Gandler is currently in Toronto for the draft combine, so perhaps he'll strike up a conversation with the Leafs' brass while he's in town.

Leo Komarov has reportedly passed on his contract option from the KHL Moscow Dynamo.

That's in line with his previous statements expressing a desire to return to the NHL. He had 12 goals and 34 points in 52 KHL contests this season.

Leo Komarov would like to return to the Toronto Maple Leafs when he comes back to the NHL.

"I enjoyed it there, it was probably the best time of my life," Komarov told KHL.hr. "I was really happy to play with the Leafs and I hope they are going to take me back, but you never know what's going to happen. They hold my rights until July and I would love to get an offer from the Leafs." He chose to play with Dynamo Moscow of the KHL this campaign, where he has 10 goals and 28 points in 37 games, because he wanted to showcase himself better for the Olympics and he didn't get the kind of offer he wanted.

Leo Komarov will suit up for Dynamo Moscow of the KHL this season, but he plans to return to the NHL and that may come as early as the 2014-15 campaign.

"I have not finished the NHL. I want to go back there," he told sovsport.ru. "After this season, I'm a free agent." Komarov has played three seasons with Dynamo, but he played last year with Toronto. He recorded nine points and 176 hits in 42 NHL games with the Leafs.

Leo Komarov confirmed reports that he will return to the KHL next season after playing just one year with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the NHL.

He posted this on his Twitter page: "Thank you Leafs organization, fans and all my komrades in Toronto for the opportunity you gave me. I have my own reason to go to Khl and hope everybody will understand it ... i hope i will be back." Komarov was a tenacious hitter and a good penalty killer, but he had a fourth-line role with the Leafs. It's being reported that he'll get more ice time and more money when he plays in Russia.

According to reports out of Finland, Leo Komarov will rejoin Moscow Dynamo and play in the KHL next season.

Toronto GM Dave Nonis said he had "no idea" if the reports were true, but said that it "wouldn't surprise" him if it happened. Komarov finished fifth in the NHL with 176 hits in 42 games with the Maple Leafs in 2013. He also chipped in nine points and 18 penalty minutes.
Tue, Jun 11, 2013 09:00:00 AM

Leo Komarov admitted Tuesday that he's talking with the Moscow Dynamo of the KHL but said he's waiting for an offer from the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Komarov is a restricted free agent and is free to head to Russia if he pleases. Whether he's seriously contemplating it or not, the fact is that this will likely drive the price up for whatever contract Toronto had in mind. Depending on what the KHL club is willing to offer, the cost might be too much for the Leafs to keep a player that's essentially a fourth liner.
Tue, May 21, 2013 01:49:00 PM

Coach Randy Carlyle has spoken with Leo Komarov about assuming more faceoff responsibilities in Wednesday's playoff opener versus Boston.

Tyler Bozak is expected to play in Game 1, but he may not take draws which would be a significant blow to the Leafs since he is the club's top faceoff man. Komarov is viewed as underrated in that regard after he won 29 of the 57 draws he took during the regular season. Komarov is slated to take his regular shifts on the fourth line with Colton Orr and Jay McClement, where he'll throw plenty of hits and try to get under the skin of the Bruins.

Leo Komarov scored in his return to the lineup Saturday night.

The 26-year-old rookie has proven to be a versatile player for the Leafs in this 48-game shortened season. Komarov is more of a pest than anything else and his fantasy is limited.
