Kukla's Korner Hockey

Earlier today were reports on AM 640 in Toronto, citing a Swedish newspaper which stated Jonas Frogren had been signed by the Maple Leafs. But during the noon hour, Frogren himself gave an interview to FAN 590 and made no mention there was any contract in place yet. (Which is why we didn’t post the news on KK before now.)
Now this from TSN:
The Toronto Maple Leafs had hoped to announce the signing of Swedish defenceman Jonas Frogren on Wednesday but the contract was rejected by the NHL’s head office.
“We are working with the NHL Players’ Association to resolve the matter,” said Don Meehan of Newport Sports, Frogren’s agent. “We remain hopeful it will get resolved.”
The league determined Frogren, 28, must be signed to an entry-level contract as a first-year NHL player despite his pro experience in Europe. The Leafs had signed Frogren to a standard contract.
