Kerfoot agreed to terms on a four-year, $14 million contract with Toronto on Thursday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Kerfoot -- who was acquired as part of the Tyson Barrie deal -- figures to take on a bottom-six role with the Leafs, though he could still see time on the power play. With Colorado, 16 of the Vancouver native's 42 points came with the man advantage. Despite technically being a third liner, the youngster could find himself playing alongside Jason Spezza and William Nylander, which should set him up for a third consecutive 40-plus point campaign.
Kerfoot was traded to the Leafs in exchange for Nazem Kadri, Calle Rosen and a third-round pick in 2020, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. The Leafs also acquired defenseman Tyson Barrie in the deal.
In a blockbuster move between two playoff teams, Kerfoot will head north of the boarder to be added to a youthful nucleus. The 25-year-old has racked up at least 42 points in each of his last two seasons with Colorado, and averaged 2:16 of power-play time with the club. Kerfoot will likely play wing with a loaded center depth chart for the Leafs. He was also a restricted free agent this season, so expect the team to start working on a long-term deal once the trade finalizes.
Kerfoot received a qualifying offer from the Avalanche on Tuesday, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Kerfoot has been a reliable contributor for Colorado in his first two seasons, collecting 85 points over 157 regular season games. Likely headed for arbitration, the 25-year-cold can expect a hefty raise after collecting $925,000 in each of his first two seasons in the NHL.
Kerfoot posted an assist and two shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.
Kerfoot finished the series with two helpers, and he was limited to only three assists in 12 postseason games. With only 10 hits and 17 shots on goal, Kerfoot did not account for much fantasy relevance in the playoffs. He enters the summer as an arbitration-eligible restricted free agent.
Kerfoot posted an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime win against the Sharks in Game 6.
Kerfoot had not found the scoresheet since Game 3 of the first round, when he had an assist against the Flames. His two helpers through 11 postseason games have made Kerfoot an unreliable fantasy option.
Kerfoot posted an assist and two shots in Monday's 6-2 win over the Flames in Game 3.
It's his first point in the playoff run. Kerfoot had 42 points in 78 regular-season games. He's currently being used on the top line with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog, but that arrangement may end when Mikko Rantanen is deemed fully fit, which would likely shuffle Kerfoot back to the second line.
Kerfoot scored two goals on four shots in a 6-2 victory against the Oilers on Tuesday.
The 24-year-old had a long scoring drought at the beginning of March, but he's posted at least one point in each of the last six games, scoring four goals and eight points during that stretch. He's playing his best hockey of the season. Kerfoot will have to really explode in the final couple games to reach his rookie mark in the goals category, but Kerfoot is set to surpass his rookie total in the points department. He has 15 goals and 42 points -- one point shy of last season -- in 76 games during 2018-19.
Kerfoot recorded a power-play assist in Friday's 3-2 shootout win over the Coyotes.
It's Kerfoot's 16th point on the man advantage this season, raising his season totals to 12 goals and 27 assists in 74 contests. The young forward's scoring rate is virtually identical to last year. Kerfoot is just a point shy of his second consecutive 40-point campaign.
Kerfoot picked up a power-play assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.
Kerfoot has a goal and three assists in his last three games, with three of those four points coming with the man advantage. For the season, the winger has 38 points in 73 games, giving him a chance to reach 40 points for the second consecutive year if he can keep up the recent hot stretch.
Kerfoot notched a power-play goal in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.
Kerfoot's goal was a lucky deflection off his knee from Tyson Barrie's shot on a 5-on-3. After a nine-game point drought from March 3 to 21, Kerfoot has a goal and two helpers in over the weekend's two-game home-and-home set with Chicago. Kerfoot is up to 37 points (12 goals, 25 assists) in 72 games, with 14 of his points this season on the man advantage.
Kerfoot picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Blackhawks.
The second-year forward hadn't found the scoresheet in his last nine games before Saturday's performance. Kerfoot only has 11 goals and 36 points through 71 games on the season, but with the Avs clinging to the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference, they could use someone other than Nathan MacKinnon to step up and supply some offense.
Kerfoot scored on the power play and registered two helpers in a 5-0 win over the Predators on Saturday.
Kerfoot and Nathan MacKinnon (two goals, one assist) led the way for the Avalanche in this contest. Kerfoot is up to 33 points in 58 games this season, with 11 of those points coming with a man advantage. The scoring is attractive in many fantasy formats, but with only 80 shots, 14 hits and 21 blocks this year, he isn't known for contributing in peripheral stats.
Kerfoot recorded a goal and an assist in a 5-2 loss to Toronto on Tuesday.
The Harvard product reached double figures in goals with Tuesday's tally. Colorado will be hoping Kerfoot's performance against Toronto kickstarts his production moving forward, as in the prior six contests he logged just one assist and a total of six shots on goal.
Kerfoot scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to Nashville.
Kerfoot is up to nine goals and 26 points in 45 games on the season, on pace for another 40-point performance. His goal scoring is down, but that was expected after he notched 19 on a ridiculous 23.5 shooting percentage last season. The 24-year-old should be a consistent source of secondary scoring, especially with a role on Colorado's second power-play unit.
Kerfoot scored twice Saturday in a 6-4 loss to the Coyotes.
Kerfoot has three points (two goals, one assist) in his last two games after struggling through an eight-game point and 14-game goal drought. He's actually on pace to finish with a slight improvement on his 43-point rookie campaign. It just doesn't feel like it. Kerfoot is talented, but reality is harsh -- how many owners can afford to roster a streaky, pass-first, 45-point pivot in anything but the deepest of formats?
Kerfoot (upper body) will return to the lineup Wednesday against the Canadiens, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.
As was expected after he shed his non-contact jersey in practice Tuesday, Kerfoot will rejoin the forward ranks Wednesday following four games spent in the press box. He will initially slot in on the bottom line alongside Gabriel Bourque and Colin Wilson, but that doesn' mean that won't change as the game progresses.
Kerfoot (upper body) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Now that he's been cleared for contact, Kerfoot appears to be on track to return to action Wednesday against the Canadiens, but official word on his status may not come out until Colorado takes the ice for pregame warmups. Assuming he's given the green light, the Avalanche will be happy to have Kerfoot back in the lineup against Montreal, as he's been a solid source of secondary scoring this season, notching four goals and 18 points in 30 appearances.
Kerfoot (upper body) took part in Monday's game-day skate in a non-contact jersey, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Considering Kerfoot hasn't been cleared for contact, it's probably safe to assume he won't be in the lineup against the Islanders on Monday. With the center missing his fourth straight outing, recently recalled Sheldon Dries figures to immediately jump into the lineup.
Kerfoot (upper body) is out of the lineup Saturday against Dallas.
Kerfoot hasn't suited up since Dec. 8 and was mired in a seven-game point drought before getting hurt, erasing the momentum he had built up with 18 points in his first 23 appearances of the season. His next chance to return comes Monday against the Islanders.
Kerfoot will miss Friday's game versus the Blues with an upper-body injury, Louie Korac of NHL.com reports.
The extra rest wasn't enough to get Kerfoot back to full health, and he'll miss Friday's road affair in St. Louis as a result. Playing the first half of a back-to-back, Colorado's quick turnaround may force Kerfoot to sit out his team's next game too. The 24-year-old has been an effective piece for the Avs this season when healthy, on his way to posting four goals and 18 points in 30 games.
