TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Maple Leafs have resolved their contract dispute with Cody Franson, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with the defenseman.
Franson, 26, had four goals and 25 assists during a career year in 2013. He is expected to play top-four minutes this season.
``Franny's back!'' center Nazem Kadri wrote on his Twitter account.
The signing puts the Maple Leafs in a salary-cap crunch, especially because right wing David Clarkson is suspended for the first 10 games of the regular season.
