Nick Kypreos is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs have agreed to terms with C Mikhail Grabovski on a 3 year deal, worth $8.7M or just under $3M per season. Grabovski is coming off an impressive debut campaign for the Maple Leafs in which he recorded 20 goals and 48 points in 78 games played. This contract will lock him up until 2012, when he can start looking for the big bucks at the prime age of 28. A nice signing by Toronto, and the term of the contract should inspire Grabovski to work his tail off for that next big payday. With Mikhail in the fold, the Leafs payroll now stands at approximately $50M, leaving about $7M left in cap space.
