Toronto Maple Leafs sign Brayden Irwin
The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to go the NCAA college route to help rebuild their team a bit faster signing University of Vermont forward Brayden Irwin. The 23 year old Toronto native was signed to a two year entry level deal and was a teammate last season of Leafs winger Viktor Stalberg. The 6'5 player finished his fourth season in Vermont picking up 34 points in 39 games. Irwin is the first player signed by Brian Burke from the college ranks this season, Burke signed up Tyler Bozak and Christian Hanson last season, both players are currently playing with the NHL club.
