Maple Leafs Sign Trevor Smith

David Nonis, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Thursday the hockey club has signed forward Trevor Smith to a one-year contract. The Leafs also announced the signing of their third-round draft pick in 2014, defenceman Rinat Valiev, to a three-year entry level contract.

Smith, 29, played 28 games for the Maple Leafs last season, collecting nine points (four goals, five assists) with four penalty minutes. The 6-1, 195-pound forward also collected 10 goals, 16 assists, 26 points and 10 penalty minutes while serving as captain of the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies in 2013-14.

Smith made his Maple Leafs debut October 8 against Colorado, becoming the 900th player in franchise history. The native of Ottawa, Ontario, also missed 24 NHL games (Dec. 19-Feb. 8) due to a broken hand.

Valiev, 19, posted five goals and 23 assists for 28 points with 68 penalty minutes and a plus-27 rating in 55 games with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League last season. The 6-1, 205-pound defenceman also appeared in 13 playoff games with Kootenay, collecting nine points on a goal and eight assists with 16 minutes in penalties.

A native of Nizhnekamsk, Russia, Valiev was selected 68th overall by the Maple Leafs at the 2014 Entry Draft in June.
