Leafs Sign Forechecking Forward


The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Nicolas Aube-Kubel to a one-year deal worth $1 million.

Fresh off a Stanley Cup win with the Avalanche, Aube-Kubel is headed to Toronto.

In 67 games this past season, Aube-Kubel scored 11 goals and 11 assists for 22 total points. The twenty-six year old is a depth forward with good defensive awareness. He's one of the best forecheckers in the league and will likely be used on the fourth line. 

Solid low risk signing for the Leafs.
