Maple Leafs sign Russian forward Alexander Barabanov to one-year deal

Recommended Posts

The 2019-20 NHL season remains on hold amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but that didn't stop the Toronto Maple Leafs from bolstering their roster. Alexander Barabanov and the Leafs agreed to terms on a one-year, entry-level deal bringing the Russian forward to the team in 2020-21.

In Barabanov the Leafs are getting a 2018 Olympic gold medalist, a two-time Kontinental Hockey League Gagarin Cup champion and two-time World Championships Bronze medalist. Over 43 games with SKA St. Petersburg this season, Barabanov scored 20 points on 11 goals and nine assists (he added three points on a goal and two assists over four playoff games).


"He's a very strong winger. Tremendous playmaking ability, skill level in tight," Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas said on a March 31 conference call with reporters. "But one of the other things that we like most about him is his ability to make plays under pressure and his ability to win pucks, protect pucks when people come after him, and (he) uses his strength to be able to do that."

Is there a COVID-19 clause in that contract?  ie: Is this guy going to be getting paid whether we have a season or not?
