Detroit Red Wings v Toronto Maple Leafs

Quick hits: Aerosmith and the Stanley Cup, Leafs re-sign Mike Zigomanis and more

Here are a few stories from around the NHL that are worth mentioning, but might not have enough meat for a full post.

  • In faceoff-winning news, the Toronto Maple Leafs re-signed center Mike Zigomanis to a one-year deal. He played eight games for the Maple Leafs and 64 with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies last season, so my guess is that it might be a two-way contract. He’s a marginal player, but he’s exceptional in the faceoff circle: he won more than 52 percent in those eight games with Toronto and 62.9 percent in his other most recent run of NHL-level games (22 with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2008-09).
