Maple Leafs Sign Pilar, Wilm
TORONTO (AP) _ The Toronto Maple Leafs re-signed defenseman Karel Pilar and also agreed to a one-year deal with free agent forward Clarke Wilm.
Both were assigned to the Leafs’ AHL affiliate in St. John’s, Newfoundland, on Tuesday along with defenseman Maxim Kondratiev.
Pilar, a restricted free agent, missed training camp because of a ``recurring medical problem″ the Maple Leafs declined to further explain. He missed most of last season because of a virus that was so severe it weakened his heart.
Pilar had three goals and four assists in 17 games with Toronto last season.
Wilm had five goals and 11 assists in 82 games for the Nashville Predators last season. He was signed by the Predators after four seasons with Calgary.
