Josh Jooris has found another team in the NHL. According to Elliotte Friedman (Sportsnet), he has signed a one-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Chris McSorley was also interested in the forward, who is in possession of a Swiss license and would thus not count against the import player contingent. The team manager and head coach of Genève-Servette HC told the Tribune de Genève in mid-June that they were on Jooris' short list. HC Lugano was also interested in him.

The 27-year-old forward played 31 games for the Carolina Hurricanes last season, before he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins at the end of February. He only suited up in nine games for the Pens, all of them in the regular season. His new deal with Toronto is worth $650,000.
