Clifford signed a two-year, $2 million deal with the Blues.

“I’m just excited,” said Clifford. “I didn’t want to leave; I know they didn’t want me to leave. So I’m thrilled to be back. I know some of these (Marlies) guys. And I was able to see some of the Leafs guys (Thursday) night, too. So it’s just fun to see everybody.”

Clifford signed with the Blues on October 11th. He was previously acquired by the Maple Leafs in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on February 5, 2020.

The plan for Clifford is to join the Toronto Marlies, before eventually re-joining the Maple Leafs once he is back conditionally ready to play.

In his hockey career, Clifford won the Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings in 2012 and 2014.
