Leafs sign former Canucks forward Mike Santorelli.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed center Mike Santorelli to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: An affordable move by the Leafs to shore up their depth at center. Santorelli had 10 goals and 28 points in 49 games before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. He’s a former 20-goal, 40-point scorer. 

The Carolina Hurricanes signed defenseman Tim Gleason to a one-year, $1.2 million contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Hurricanes dealt Gleason to the Leafs in a mid-season salary-dumping trade. Having been bought out by the Leafs, the Hurricanes get him back at a more affordable price. 

The Buffalo Sabres signed defenseman Tyson Strachan to a one-year, $600K deal.
