According to a team release, the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed NCAA prospect Trevor Moore to a three-year entry-level contract. Moore played last season at the University of Denver, where he scored 11 goals and 44 points in just 40 games.
Moore had been skating at the Maple Leafs development camp earlier this month and must have impressed the coaching staff enough to deserve this deal. He went undrafted before heading to college in 2013, but immediately made his mark by leading the Pioneers in scoring as a freshman. In 121 games at the UofD, Moore scored 120 points, and led the team to the semi-finals in the most recent Frozen Four.
Moore will add another body to the Maple Leafs stocked prospect cupboard, joining the likes of Kerby Rychel, Andreas Johnson and Tobias Lindberg on the left side. He’ll surely be headed for the AHL Marlies to season his game somewhat before getting a chance at the NHL level.
