David Clarkson has returned to the Toronto Maple Leafs, but is not expected to play.
The former member of the Kitchener Rangers, hasn't played in years due to a back injury that ended his career.
But the 35-year-old still has one year remaining on a seven year contract the Leafs originally signed him to, which carries a cap hit of $5.2 million.
In 2015, Toronto traded Clarkson to Columbus, then he was acquired by the Vegas Golden Knights prior to the expansion draft in 2017.
Clarkson returned to the Leafs in a trade with Vegas on Tuesday in which Toronto also gets a fourth-round pick in next year's draft.
The Golden Knights get former Guelph Storm goalie Garret Sparks.
