Ondrej Kase signs one-year deal with the Hurricanes

Ondrej Kase is off to a new team after the Maple Leafs decided not to qualify him just two days ago.

The 26-year-old played 50 games in Toronto last season, scoring 14 goals and 13 assists in that span. One of the biggest reasons why the Maple Leafs didn’t qualify Kase was because of the possible arbitration case that they felt his side could’ve put together to get more money.
