Veteran NHL forward Boyd Devereaux has agreed to a one year, two-way contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
It is expected the Leafs will place Devereaux on waivers and if he clears, send him to the AHL's Toronto Marlies to add depth for both teams.
Insignificant? Not at all for the Leafs. If he clears waivers and is sent down to the Marlies, then it almost guarantees that one of John Pohl and Bates Battaglia may already have a spot on the starting roster nearly secured. :thumbsup:
They'll need a replacement in the AHL to take one of their places.
