Leafs Agree To Terms With Williams

(April 1, 2004) -- John Ferguson, general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs announced Thursday that the team has signed junior prospect Jeremy Williams to an entry-level contract. In keeping with club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Williams, 20, finished his third full season with the Western Hockey League's Swift Current Broncos in 2003-2004 by being named to the WHL's Eastern Conference First All-Star Team. The native of Glenavon, Saskatchewan led the WHL with 52 goals and was second in the league with 49 assists and 101 points.

Williams, who also led the Broncos with a plus/minus rating of plus-19, was a member of Team WHL in the 2004 Canada Russia Challenge Series and was named the WHL Player of the Month for November. The 5'11, 185 lb. right winger had the league's longest goal streak this season scoring in 13 consecutive games.

Williams was originally drafted by the Maple Leafs with their seventh choice, 220th overall, in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He will join the American Hockey League's St. John's Maple Leafs and will be available for tonight's game in Toronto against the Roadrunners.
