The Toronto Maple Leafs have locked up restricted free agent defenseman Martin Marincin to a one-year deal.

According to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston, it’s a one-way contract worth $700,000.

The 23-year-old’s three-year, entry-level deal expired last week.

Marincin was acquired by the Leafs from the Oilers at the NHL Draft in exchange for Brad Ross and a 2015 fourth-round draft pick.

Marincin has appeared in 85 NHL games with the Oilers scoring one goal and 10 assists.

The 6-foot-4, 203-pound blue liner was originally a second round pick (46th overall) by the Oilers at the 2010 NHL Draft.

With Marincin signed, the lone RFA on the Leafs roster is goaltender Jonathan Bernier.
