The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Thursday that they signed defensive prospect Cade Webber to a two-year, entry-level contract worth $875,000 per season.

Toronto acquired Webber's rights from the Carolina Hurricanes prior to the trade deadline for a sixth-round pick in 2026. The 6-foot-7 blue-liner was a fourth-round draft selection of the Hurricanes in 2019 and recently finished his collegiate career with Boston University.

Webber, 23, notched six points in 38 games for the Terriers this past season, helping the school reach the Frozen Four. He was named Hockey East's top defensive defenseman in 2023-24.
