Breaking: Brad Treliving Confirm Three Important Signing To Maple Leaf To Bolster Squad

Brad Treliving has finalized three additional signings for the Maple Leafs, marking the completion of deals he hinted at earlier this week. On the second day of NHL free agency, Toronto’s general manager secured defenseman Dakota Mermis, defenseman Philippe Myers, and center Cedric Pare to one-year contracts worth $775,000 each.

Dakota Mermis, a six-foot defenseman from Illinois, brings the most recent NHL experience among the trio, having played 74 games with Minnesota, Arizona, and New Jersey. This past season, he contributed eight points in 47 games for the Wild, also serving as captain for their AHL affiliate, the Iowa Wild.


Philippe Myers, aged 27 and originally from Moncton, New Brunswick, returns to Toronto after a stint with the Nashville organization. His career includes 158 NHL games with Philadelphia, Nashville, and Tampa Bay, where the towering 6-foot-6 defenseman amassed 36 points. Last season, he played five games with the Tampa Bay Lightning after posting 23 points with their AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch.

Cedric Pare, a 25-year-old center from Levis, Quebec, joins on a two-way contract following an impressive season with the AHL’s Colorado Eagles, where he recorded 35 points in 61 games. Drafted in the sixth round by Boston in 2017, Pare is yet to make his NHL debut, standing at 6-foot-3 and weighing 205 pounds.

In addition to these signings, the Maple Leafs also confirmed the acquisition of goaltender Matt Murray on a one-year contract valued at $875,000, further bolstering their roster ahead of the upcoming season.
