It turns out Dave Nonis’ trip to Finland was well worth it.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Leo Komarov to a new deal. ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun reports it’s a four-year deal worth $11.8 million.

As we mentioned earlier today, Nonis visited Komarov to try and convince him to return to the Maple Leafs but Komarov wanted to test the market. It turns out the Leafs’ desire to bring him back was substantial as they’re giving him nearly $3 million per season to return from the KHL.

Komarov played one season with Toronto, the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign, and had four goals and nine points in 42 games. He’ll plug in on the Leafs’ third line and provide help on the penalty kill and a lot more sandpaper to the lineup.

    Now this, I like. Leafs have now cornered the market on Swedish-speaking Fins from Estonia.

      You all managed to get Komarov back. I guess you do what you have to in these situations… good luck
