      Maple Leafs' Rich Clune: Inks one-year deal with Maple Leafs

      Clune signed a one-year contract with the Maple Leafs on Thursday. The 28-year-old forward signed an AHL-only contract with the Toronto Marlies in July, but performed well enough in the AHL to warrant an NHL contract offer from the big club. Clune tallied five points (two goals, three assists) in eight games with AHL Toronto this season. If he draws into the Maple Leafs lineup Friday against the Rangers, it will likely be as a bottom-six forward.

    • Leafs Sign Clune TO AHL Deal

      News: Rich Clune signed an AHL deal with Toronto over the weekend.
      Analysis: Bought out of the final year of his contract by the Predators before free agency started, Rich Clune will head north to continue his career after recording 17 points in 62 games for AHL Milwaukee last season while making one appearance with their parent club in Nashville. Clune, who recently opened up in The Players' Tribune about his prior struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, has been sober for five years and could reemerge as a fourth-line option for the Maple Leafs at some point in 2015-16 if he first excels with their farm team.

      Analysis: Earlier indications suggested that Rich Clune wasn't going to be bought out by the Predators, but the team ultimately elected to cut ties. Clune will thus become an unrestricted free agent, though don't expect him to generate a ton of interest on the open market. The 28-year-old's lack of offensive ability will likely force him to settle for a one-year, two-way deal.

    • Minimal Ice Time For Preds' Clune In Opener

      News: Rich Clune skated just 5:30 in Thursday's season opener against Ottawa. He registered three hits but zero shots on goal and took no penalties.
      Analysis: With 305 career PIM along with just 18 points in 120 games, it's not hard to tell where Rich Clune's minimal fantasy value lies. The problem is, as an enforcer he just doesn't see enough ice time to warrant any real consideration outside of ultra-deep leagues.
    • Preds' Clune Supplies Goal In Finale

      News: Richard Clune registered his third goal of the season in Sunday's win over the Wild.
      Analysis: He also chipped in 14 penalty minutes to finish with 166 for the season, good for fourth-best in the NHL. Aside from the penalty minutes and hits categories, Richard Clune is largely a drain for fantasy owners everywhere else.
