Maple Leafs, Franson agree to terms
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.
