Maple Leafs agree to two-year deal with MacArthur

The Toronto Maple Leafs have avoided arbitration with Clarke

MacArthur, re-signing the restricted free agent to a two-year

contract extension Tuesday.

The deal will pay MacArthur $3.25 million a season.

The 26-year-old signed with the Leafs last August after the

Atlanta Thrashers walked away from a $2.4-million arbitration

ruling. The left-winger ended up taking $1.4 million to sign in

Toronto.

MacArthur set career highs in goals (21), assists (41) and

points (62) in 2010-11 with the Leafs.

The Lloydminster, Alta., native has played in 290 career NHL

games with Toronto, Atlanta and Buffalo, registering 65 goals and

85 assists.
