Maple Leafs sign goaltender Antoine Bibeau to entry-level contract

TORONTO - The Maple Leafs signed goaltender Antoine Bibeau to a three-year, entry-level contract on Tuesday.

Bibeau, Toronto's sixth-round pick at No. 172 overall in last year's draft, was named the outstanding goaltender of the 2014 MasterCard Memorial Cup.

The 20-year-old netminder had a 2.76 goals-against average and .932 save percentage in London for the Val-d'Or Foreurs.

Before that, Bibeau was the MVP of the QMJHL playoffs, the first goalie to earn that distinction since current Leafs starter Jonathan Bernier.

The Victoriaville, Que., native spent last season with Val-d'Or and Charlottetown, going 21-18-6 with a 3.17 GAA and .907 save percentage.

Bibeau is one of three solid goaltending prospects in the Leafs' system, along with late-bloomer Christopher Gibson and 2011 seventh-rounder Garret Sparks.
