Connor Brown remains Toronto's lone remaining restricted free agent.
"Obviously it's my first time going through something like this," Brown said. "I don't think it's as stressful as the media would make it out to be. I'm very confident things will get sorted by season time. We'll get it figured out." He is busy preparing for the upcoming season. Brown added that he is leaving the talks to his agent and the Maple Leafs, as he focuses on what he can control. Aug 11 - 9:02 AM

The Toronto Maple Leafs have confirmed that they're exercising their LTIR option this summer, which means that re-signing RFA Connor Brown while staying under the cap shouldn't be an issue.

The Maple Leafs are technically nearly $4 million over the salary cap, which has led to speculation that they might not have enough room to re-sign Brown without first making a trade. However, Nathan Horton and Joffrey Lupul combine for $10.525 million in cap space and can both be placed on the LTIR. There was initially some confusion as to whether or not the LTIR could be utilized during the summer, but it seems that it can and the Maple Leafs are doing exactly that.

Connor Brown isn't concerned that he hasn't signed a new contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs yet.

Brown is the team's only remaining restricted free agent. "I’m confident in that. Things will sort themselves out," Brown said. "All I can do is continue to work hard on my part during the summer and let my agent (talk to) management." He scored 20 goals and 36 points in 82 contests last season, so he's due for a solid payday, especially if it's part of a multi-year deal. The Leafs aren't in an ideal cap situation though, but it's not as bad as it might initially appear given that Nathan Horton can be put on the LTIR and Joffrey Lupul might end up spending the 2017-18 on there as well.

Connor Brown is one marker shy of hitting the 20-goal mark.

He scored his 19th of the season against Nashville on Thursday night (empty-netter) and he now has his sights set on number 20. "It would be cool to get 20 in the NHL in the first year," Brown said. "That would be awesome, especially being this close to it. But with how close the standings are, that’s priority one." Rookies like Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews and William Nylander have grabbed all the headlines in Toronto this season, but Brown has been a pleasant surprise.

Connor Brown produced a goal and an assist in a 3-1 win versus Nashville on Thursday night.

He dished the puck to Auston Matthews for a power-play goal late in the second period and sealed the win himself with an empty-netter. Brown has quietly amassed 19 goals during his rookie campaign. He has three markers and two assists during a four-game point streak.

Connor Brown scored a goal in Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to the New York Rangers.

Brown opened the scoring at the 10:56 mark of the first period to give Toronto the 1-0 lead, but it was the only offense they were able to come up with tonight. The Maple Leafs got a valuable point in the standings thanks to goalie Frederik Andersen, who turned in a fantastic performance in the loss. Brown has three goals in his last three games and he's up to 15 on the season. He has 27 points in 60 contests.

Connor Brown notched a pair of tallies in Toronto's 4-0 win over Carolina on Sunday evening.

The rookie opened and closed the scoring, earning credit for the game winning goal. In 58 games, the 23-year-old has 14 goals and 26 points. Brown unleashed five shots on goal in the victory.

Connor Brown is expected to take Mitch Marner's place on a line with Tyler Bozak and James van Riemsdyk.

Brown played with those two players two training camps ago, but the line never actually stuck. Now, it looks like they'll get an opportunity to see what they can do against Ottawa on Saturday night. "When we came in this year I thought that was going to be a line, to be honest with you," Babcock said of the trio. "That was the plan, but it went somewhere else. I didn’t know Mitch was ready like he is. But (Brown) has an opportunity with those guys now."

Connor Brown has found the back of the net in five of Toronto's last six games.

Brown now has 11 goals and 20 points in 41 games this season. Among rookies he's now in a three-way tie for third place in the goal scoring race. That's pretty impressive, but it's also great news for the Maple Leafs. Brown isn't even regarded as one of Toronto's top-three rookies this season as Auston Matthews, Mitchell Marner, and William Nylander are all more highly regarded and having better campaigns. As it stands the Leafs might make the playoffs this season and if they do, it will be on the strength of their rookies including Brown.

Connor Brown scored a shorthanded goal in Friday's 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Devils goalie Cory Schneider made life easy for Brown. Schneider took too long to play the puck and Brown was able to steal it and put it into a gaping cage. He became the first Maple Leafs rookie to score a shorthanded goal since Christian Hanson last did it in 2010. Brown has nine goals and nine assists in 38 games this season.

Connor Brown notched a trio of points during Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over Detroit in the Centennial Classic.

Impressively, it's his second game of the season with at least three points. Brown scored a goal and two helpers, giving him seven goals and 16 points in 36 games so far this season.
Jan 1 - 7:56 PM

Connor Brown scored two goals and added two assists in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Florida Panthers.

Brown had just three points in 16 games coming into tonight, so this offensive outburst wasn't expected. He opened the scoring at the 5:55 mark of the first period and he gave his team a 2-1 lead less than 10 minutes later. Brown also helped set up goals by Leo Komarov and Jake Gardiner. It was a nice performance from Brown, but don't rush to add him to your fantasy lineup. He can remain on the waiver wire.

The spot was opened after the Leafs placed Milan Michalek on waivers Monday. Brown had been playing on the fourth line, but coach Mike Babcock is more than happy to move him up the depth chart.
