Toronto Maple Leafs to Sign Zaitsev?

The Toronto Maple Leafs are on the verge of landing prized Russian prospect Nikita Zaitsev, as reported on NBC Sports.  The 24 year-old defenseman was most recently playing for CSK Moscow in the KHL, where he had 24 points in 40 games this season.  The NBC Sports article quotes SportsNet's Elliotte Friedman on Twitter, noting that Zaitsev is notifying teams of his intention and that the contract would be a one-year entry level deal.
