The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Frederik Gauthier to a two-year, two-way contract with an annual salary of $675,000, the team announced Wednesday.

Last year with the Toronto Marlies, Gauthier netted 18 points in 57 games, adding another eight during their playoff run in which they were crowned Calder Cup champions for the first time. The Quebec native has laced up for the Leafs 37 times since being drafted 21st overall by the club in 2013.

The Leafs' newly appointed general manager, Kyle Dubas, is no stranger to the 6-foot-5, 232-pound center. The two spent the past three seasons together with the Marlies before Dubas was promoted to his new role in May.
