Holland (concussion) avoided arbitration and settled on a one-year, $1.3 million deal with Toronto on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. It seems the Leafs move to waive Holland helped to move the two sides closer as they were able to finalize a new deal prior to Monday's arbitration hearing. Given the shuffling on Toronto's roster due to their rebuild, it is hard to pin down what to expect for the 25-year-old in terms of ice time, however fantasy owners probably shouldn't expect too much beyond his 27 point 2015-16 campaign.
Holland (concussion) cleared waivers Saturday, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports. The Maple Leafs waived Holland on Friday in hopes of using the move as a bargaining chip in the Canadian forward's upcoming arbitration hearing. It was a somewhat risky move that worked out for the club, as there ultimately were no other organizations interested in acquiring Holland via a waiver claim. The 25-year-old forward, who notched 27 points (nine goals, 18 assists) over 65 games with Toronto last season, will now move forward with his arbitration hearing, which is scheduled to take place Monday.
Holland (concussion) was placed on waivers by Toronto on Friday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports. The Leafs are likely waiving Holland as a bargaining chip is his upcoming arbitration hearing as the team will want to give him a two-way deal. The winger's 2015-16 season ended early due to concussion symptoms, but when he was healthy, he had moderate production for a bottom six forward, nine goals and 18 helpers. If the 25-year-old goes unclaimed, he will move forward with his arbitration hearing that is scheduled for Monday.
Holland (concussion) received a qualifying offer from the Maple Leafs on Monday, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports. Holland missed the last 12 games of the season while dealing with concussion symptoms but is expected to be ready to go for the start of 2016-17. Although the winger tallied just 27 points on the year, 11 of those points came on the man advantage where he average 2:29 in ice time per night. Along with Holland, Toronto also made qualifying offers to Josh Leivo, Martin Marincin, Connor Carrick, Frank Corrado, and Garret Sparks in order to retain their rights as restricted free agents.
Holland classified his injury as a concussion after being a non-contact participant in Friday's practice, Dave McCarthy of TSN reports. Holland has missed the last seven games while dealing with the injury, which wasn't classified until now. While Holland skated in Friday's practice, he's unlikely to return until he's a full-participant in a couple of practices.
