Before his most recent injury, Ondrej Kase was having a good bounce-back season. He only played three games last season for the Boston Bruins due to injury. So fans in Toronto were surprised when the Maple Leafs signed him.
This season he was able to register 14 goals and 13 assists for 27 points in 50 games. It is a shame that he got hurt, but Toronto could be getting him back in time for the playoffs. He is an added scoring threat, and during the playoffs, you can never have too many of those.
When the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Kampf to a two-year deal worth $1.5 million a season, fans were left scratching their heads. Why would Toronto pay that much for a guy who only scored one goal in 56 games last season?
It turns out that scoring just one goal last season was a fluke. Kampf has 11 goals and 15 assists for 26 points in 80 games. He has played in every game this season, is good at faceoffs, and is a great penalty killer. All of that for $1.5 million looks like a good deal now, and the Leafs have him signed for one more season.
