Maple Leafs re-sign Nikolai Kulemin and John Mitchell
The Toronto Maple Leafs have re-signed two components from last seasons squad by inking Nikolai Kulemin and John Mitchell this past day. Kulemin was signed to a 2 year contract worth 4.7 million over 2 years. Kulemin was one of the better Leafs in the second half last season and chipped in 16 goals in 78 games. Mitchell was signed to a 1 year contract worth $725,000. Mitchell's second season in the NHL saw the youngster suffer an injury which derailed his on ice performance as he scored only 6 goals which was half of what he scored his rookie year.
