The Maple Leafs have nearly finished filling up their roster.
Toronto signed newly acquired center Alexander Kerfoot and defenseman Cody Ceci to new contracts on Thursday. Kerfoot joins the team on a four-year deal with an AAV of $3.5 million. Ceci agreed to a one-year contract worth $4.5 million.
The Leafs traded for Kerfoot, 24, along with Tyson Barrie and a sixth-round draft pick from the Avalanche in exchange for Nazem Kadri and Calle Rosen. He posted 42 points (15-27-42) with a minus-nine rating in 78 games last season. Kerfoot failed to find the back of the net in his 12 playoff games, but notched three assists.
Ceci, 25, headlined the Senators’ package in the trade for Nikita Zaitsev and Connor Brown. The sixth-year veteran tied his career-high with 26 points (7-19-26) last season in 74 games.
