The Toronto Maple Leafs have avoided arbitration with restricted free agent defenceman Cody Franson.

Toronto reached an agreement on a $3.3 million one-year contract with the 26-year-old defenceman.

In 79 games with the Leafs in 2013-14, Franson scored five goals and 28 assists. He made $2 million on his last contract.

This marks the third consecutive one-year deal Franson has signed with the Leafs since being acquired via trade from the Nashville Predators in 2011.

Originally selected in the third round (79th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the Predators, Franson has scored 28 goals and added 105 assists in 322 career games with Nashville and Toronto. The Leafs acquired Franson from the Predators along with Matthew Lombardi in exchange for Brett Lebda, Robert Slaney and a conditional draft pick.
