TheFourthPeriod.com

The Toronto Maple Leafs have avoided arbitration with restricted free agent Cody Franson, signing the defenseman to a one-year, $3.3 million contract.

Franson, 26, played 79 games for the Maple Leafs in 2013-14, collecting five goals and 28 assists for 33 points, with 30 penalty minutes.

He ranked second in NHL hits (282) and was third on the Leafs in blocked shots (111). He established single-season career highs in assists and points last season.

The native of Sicamous, British Columbia has played 322 career NHL games with the Nashville Predators and Maple Leafs, posting 28 goals, 105 assists, 133 points, 106 minutes in penalties and a plus-eight rating.

Franson was acquired by the Maple Leafs along with Matthew Lombardi from the Predators on July 3, 2011 in exchange for Brett Lebda and Robert Slaney.

He was originally selected by Nashville in the third round, 79th overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
