Leafs sign newly acquired Beck: one year, $875,000

Chicago Blackhawks v Nashville Predators - Game Five

Chicago Blackhawks v Nashville Predators - Game Five

On Sunday, Toronto acquired Taylor Beck from Nashville in exchange for Jamie Devane.

On Monday, the Leafs locked him in.

The two sides have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $875,000 deal, per Sportsnet. Beck, 24, had filed for arbitration while still a member of the Predators, only to have his RFA rights shipped to Toronto over the weekend.

All told, it’s a decent pickup for Toronto.

Beck has good size -- 6-foot-2, 203 pounds -- and was moderately productive in Nashville last year, scoring eight goals and 16 points in 62 games. He also just turned 24 in May, so the Leafs get a young player with good NHL experience.

Beck has 85 regular season games on his resume, and appeared in five of Nashville’s six games during an opening-round playoff loss to Chicago this past spring.
