It may be a national holiday in the United States, but the NHL teams north of the border in Canada are hard at work adding players to their rosters. The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that the team has come to terms on a contract with journeyman forward Troy Bodie.
The contract is a one-year, two-way deal.
Bodie signed with the Maple Leafs last year on a one-year contract that saw him spend most of his time in the NHL with the parent club. In 47 games played, Bodie scored three goals and seven assists for 10 points. He also had a plus-six rating, which was good for second on the team.
Prior to signing on with Toronto, Bodie had spend the last two seasons in the AHL with the Syracuse Crunch, Norfolk Admirals and Portland Pirates. Before his time as an AHL journeyman, Bodie three years with the Anaheim Ducks where he scored five goals and three assists in 57 games, and one season with the Carolina Hurricanes, scoring once in 50 games.
He is expected to come into training camp this season and fight for a spot on the fourth line with the Maple Leafs.
