Byron Froese has agreed to a two-year, two-way deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs

Froese had 18 goals and 42 points in 49 AHL contests with the Toronto Marlies and San Antonio Rampage in 2014-15. He's projected to start the 2015-16 campaign in the minors as well, although Toronto is a trade that could be busy on the trade market between now and the start of the season as it shifts its attention towards the future. If that's the case, there could be a number of open slots to compete for during training camp.

Nonis is under contract with Toronto, but was relieved of his duties as the Toronto Maple Leafs' general manager in April. Nonis previously served as an advisor with the Ducks before coming to the Maple Leafs' organization.

Toronto native Daniel Winnik has re-signed with the Maple Leafs for one-year, $2.25M.

That's a nice step up in pay from the one-year, $1.3M deal he signed with Toronto last summer. The Leafs sent Winnik to Pittsburgh in a deadline-deal for Zack Sill, a 2015 fourth round pick, and a 2016 second round pick. The latter was sent back to Pittsburgh in the Phil Kessel deal. Winnik had a career-season in 2014-15, tallying nine goals and 34 points.

Mark Arcobello has agreed to a one-year contract with Toronto worth $1.1 million.

He produced 17 goals and 31 points in 77 games between the Arizona Coyotes, Edmonton Oilers, Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins in 2014-15. Arcobello become an unrestricted free agent after Arizona didn't tender him a qualifying offer.

Richard Panik has inked a one-year extension with Toronto worth $975,000.

Panik was a restricted free agent. He recorded 17 points in 76 games with the Maple Leafs after he was obtained off waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

P. A. Parenteau has signed a one-year/$1.5 million contract with Toronto.

He was just bought out by the Canadiens after he had 22 points in 56 games last season.
Jul 1 - 2:30 PM

Nick Spaling was traded to the Maple Leafs in the Phil Kessel deal.

Spaling and his $2.2 million salary cap hit will move to Toronto where he will likely line up as a third-line winger. He could contribute modest offensive totals given his history in Nashville but we would not bet on him bettering his 27-point effort of 2014-15 in Pittsburgh with the rebuilding Maple Leafs.
Jul 1 - 1:55 PM

Scott Harrington was traded to Toronto in the Phil Kessel deal.

Harrington was a scoring defensemen with the London Knights a number of seasons ago but he has not shown much in the AHL with Wilkes-Barre-Scranton. Last season Harrington registered 12 points in 48 games with the Baby Pens but did not have any points in a 10-game trial with Pittsburgh. Harrington is still a prospect but he will likely not make much of an impact fantasy-wise in 2015-16.
Jul 1 - 1:48 PM

Kasperi Kapanen is now a Toronto Maple Leaf.

He was the main piece in the Phil Kessel trade and has a chance to crack the Leafs' lineup this upcoming season. That said, the Buds will patient with their talent going forward and Kapanen could start the campaign with the Marlies as he many need a little more North American seasoning after spending the 2014 regular campaign in Finland. Kapanen has some scoring ability as his 21 points in 41 games in the SM-liga will attest but he does not project as an elite forward.
Jul 1 - 1:38 PM

The Maple Leafs have signed defenseman Matt Hunwick to a 2-year, $2.4 million contract.

Hunwick will slot in as a 6th-7th defenseman in Toronto and does not really have any fantasy value given that he registered only 11 points in 55 games last season.
Jul 1 - 12:16 PM

Matt Hunwick will become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

The Rangers were interested in keeping the defenseman but now will likely look within the franchise for their seventh defenseman. Hunwick had 11 points in 55 regular season games as he was a healthy scratch on numerous occasions.
Jun 30 - 3:33 PM

Mark Arcobello will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

He didn't get a qualifying offer from Arizona. Forwards Tye McGinn, Craig Cunningham, Greg Carey, Darian Dziurzynski and Philip Lane along with defenseman John Moore and goaltenders Mark Visentin and Mike Lee weren't tendered qualifying offers either. Arcobello played for four teams in 2014-15 (Arizona, Edmonton, Nashville and Pittsburgh) and he posted 31 points in 77 games.
