Leafs add PK specialist McClement

Jul 1, 2012, 5:47 PM EDT


The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed 29-year-old center Jay McClement to a two-year, $3 million deal.

McClement had 10 goals, seven assists and 95 PIM with Colorado in 2011-12. He’s a decent faceoff man that plays physical and, perhaps most importantly, will be counted on to improve a Toronto penalty kill that ranked 29th in 2011-12.

Among NHL forwards, only Maxime Talbot and Tomas Plekanec averaged more PK time per game than McClement (3:06.)

The Avs’ PK ranked 12th last season.
