Mike Zigomanis and the Toronto Maple Leafs have come to terms on a one-year contract.

From MapleLeafs.com:

Zigomanis, 30, collected one assist and four penalty minutes in eight games with the Maple Leafs in 2010-11. The Toronto, Ontario native also appeared in 64 games with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League last season, leading the team in assists (33) and points (47), while adding 14 goals and 66 penalty minutes

CapGeek has it as a two-way deal, with Zigomanis’ NHL cap hit at 650K, while he’ll command 300K in the AHL (glove tap to @draglikepull for pointing this out.)

Zigomanis is mostly known for his ability to kill penalties, and win faceoffs – he fits nicely on the Leafs fourth line if he manages to see much time with the big club this upcoming season.
