The Toronto Maple Leafs have reportedly signed forward Garrett Wilson, according to the Toronto Sun’s Terry Koshan.
Wilson joins the Maple Leafs on a reported one-year, one-way contract worth a little more than the NHL minimum of $700,000. The Maple Leafs have yet to confirm the signing.
Wilson notched two goals and eight points in 50 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2018-19. The 28-year-old carved out a role on the Penguins’ fourth line after being called up by the team from the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in January.
He began the year as Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s captain before he was briefly called up to Pittsburgh and sent back to the AHL. He returned to Pittsburgh for the remainder of the season with the January promotion.
Wilson will enter training camp in a battle for a spot on the Maple Leafs’ fourth line and may find himself settling into a role as Toronto’s 13th forward.
He averaged a point per game in the AHL during 18 games with Wilkes/Barre Scranton last season.
