Maple Leafs sign Holland to one-year deal, avoiding arbitration
TORONTO — The Toronto Maple Leafs and forward Peter Holland have avoided arbitration after agreeing to a one-year contract worth $1.3 million.
The 25-year-old is coming off his most productive NHL season, totalling a career-high 27 points in 65 games.
A restricted free agent, Holland had an arbitration hearing scheduled for Monday.
The Toronto area native announced the news himself on Twitter, posting "Another year living my boyhood dream - Let's rock."
The Leafs still have two remaining restricted free agents to sign with defencemen Frankie Corrado and Martin Marincin both due for arbitration.
Corrado has his hearing on July 26 and Marincin on Aug. 2.
