Maple Leafs Sign Niklas Hagman
Cliff Fletcher, general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced on Tuesday that the hockey club has signed free agent forward Niklas Hagman to a four-year contract.

“We are very happy to add Niklas to our team and we look forward to him bringing his speed, grit and scoring touch to our lineup,” said Fletcher. “He’s a scoring threat while shorthanded and he uses his speed to score clutch goals.”

Hagman, 28, played in all 82 games for the Dallas Stars this past season registering a career-high 27 goals and 41 points.  The native of Espoo, Finland led Dallas with eight game-winning goals and four shorthanded goals.  He tied for second on the Stars in goals and ranked fifth in points. 

Hagman has played in 481 career NHL games for Dallas and Florida, collecting 80 goals and 85 assists for 165 points, along with 101 penalty minutes.  He was originally selected in the third round, 70th overall in the 1999 Entry Draft.          

Internationally, Hagman has represented Finland on numerous occasions including at the Olympics (2002, 2006), the World Championships (2002, 2003, 2005) and at the World Cup of Hockey (2004).
