On Monday, the Ottawa Senators signed the 29-year-old to a one-year, $800,000 contract to stay in Ontario next season.
The Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs have swapped underperforming defencemen. "He's just a wonderful person on and off the ice and was an important part of turning this team around". They move Brown's $2.1 million salary off the books and only bring back $725,000 with Harpur's deal, giving them over an extra million in financial flexibility. Never having played with a partner as efficient at moving the puck as either Morgan Rielly or Jake Muzzin - two players Ceci could get an initial chance to play with - it is possible he could flourish in Toronto.
This is a trade that serves the needs of both the Maple Leafs and Senators. "We're really happy to bring him and really excited to have him on board". He is a restricted free agent after earning $4.3 million last season. "With all due respect, we get caught up too much with contract talks in this city", said Dorion.
It's that magical day where General Managers across the National Hockey League gather to make bad decisions that will cripple their salary cap situation for years to come.
The 27-year-old produced an impressive rookie campaign with Toronto in 2015-16, registering four goals and 36 points in 82 games. Michael Carcone had 27 points in 42 AHL games last season, plus 10 points in 13 playoff games.
Zaitsev signed a seven-year, $31.5-million contract with the Leafs in the summer of 2016.

The presenter praised Mr Trump, who he said was "far less sentimental about this stuff and maybe I think.more realistic about it". In late May, Trump met with some family members of Japanese nationals abducted by North Korean agents in the 1970s and 1980s.
"I spoke with a few teams and was looking for a good fit on a good club", Spezza said on a conference call with Toronto reporters.
Agostino produced 24 points in 63 games between Montreal and New Jersey last season, and provides some depth for the Leafs at left wing. He's a strong defender, he's got great feet, he's ultra-competitive.
The deal had to await July 1 when the Leafs paid Zaitsev a $3 million USA bonus. Carolina bought Marleau out last week, making him an unrestricted free agent.
In parts of 16 National Hockey League seasons with seven different teams, Hainsey has registered 58 goals and 299 points in 1,068 games. A sixth-round selection in the 2012 draft, Brown had 99 points (43 goals, 56 assists) in 253 regular-season games with the Maple Leafs.
Ceci's salary is also an issue as he was facing salary arbitration for a second straight year after playing 2018-19 on a $4.3 million deal.
Dubas said earlier in the day Spezza should fill a role for a young, talent-filled team that has lost to the Boston Bruins in the opening round of the playoffs the last two springs.
