Report: Maple Leafs sign center Devereaux
Citing undisclosed sources, TSN of Canada on Friday reported that the Maple Leafs have agreed to terms with Devereaux on a one-year contract.
A member of Detroit's Stanley Cup championship team in 2002, Devereaux spent last season with the Phoenix Coyotes before becoming an unrestricted free agent over the summer. The 28-year-old center was invited to training camp by the Red Wings but was unable to secure a roster spot.
According to TSN, Devereaux will be placed on waivers and assigned to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League, where he will make $95,000. If he is recalled and remains with the Maple Leafs, his salary will increase to $450,000.
Drafted sixth overall by Edmonton in 1996, Devereaux has collected 46 goals and 85 assists in 509 career games with the Oilers, Red Wings and Coyotes.
