As first reported by TSN last week, the Toronto Maple Leafs have appointed NHL executive Claude Loiselle as their new assistant general manager.

Loiselle will be responsible for managing contracts, salary arbitration and the team's salary cap.

''We are extremely pleased to have Claude join our front office team,'' Leafs general manager Brian Burke said in a statement. ''Along with Claude's experience as a player in the National Hockey League, his knowledge of the business side of the game will be a great benefit to our team.''

Loiselle, 47, worked for the Maple Leafs for parts of two seasons in the early 1990's. He had been an assistant GM with the Tampa Bay Lightning under Jay Feaster, and ran the AHL Norfolk Admirals for the Lighting from 2005 until 2009. He also played 13 seasons in the NHL with the Red Wings, Devils, Nordiques, Leafs and Islanders, from 1981 to '94.
