Maple Leafs sign Jeremy Bracco to Entry-Level Contract

According to their official public relations outlet, the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Jeremy Bracco, the 61st overall pick from the 2015 draft, to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Bracco spent a few games with Boston College last season before leaving to join the Kitchener Rangers, where he scored 21 goals and picked up 43 assists in 49 games. He was dealt from Kitchener to the Windsor Spitfires mid-way through the 2016-17 season, and between the two teams has picked up 25 goals and 58 assists in 57 games.

The Leafs have now signed five of the nine players they drafted in 2015, as Bracco joins Mitch Marner, Travis Dermott, Andrew Nielsen, and Dmytro Timashov as players officially inked to entry-level deals. This signing will put the Leafs at 32 contracts for the 2017-18 season, with none of the ten players from the 2016 draft (other than Auston Matthews) signed yet.
