The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed 21 year old defenceman Viktor Loov to a three year entry level contract. Selected in the 7th round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Loov just wrapped up his first season in the SHL, playing for MODO. In 42 games, Loov scored five goals and added seven assists to go along with 20 penalty minutes. He was fifth in ice time amongst MODO defenders, averaging 16:20 per game.
