(August 5, 2005) -- John Ferguson, general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Friday that the club has signed unrestricted free agent forward Jason Allison to a one year contract. In keeping with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Allison, 30, set career highs in games played (82-tie), goals (36), assists (59), points (95) and penalty minutes (85) in the 2000-01 season. He ranked third in the NHL in powerplay points, fifth in points and seventh in assists that year.

The native of North York, Ontario missed the majority of the 2002-03 season and the entire 2003-04 season recovering from injury. In his last full season in 2001-02, he ranked first in the NHL in powerplay assists (32), second in assists (55), second in powerplay points (37) and 16th in points (74). Allison has led his team in points on four occasions, three times with Boston (1997-98, 1998-99, 2000-01) and once with Los Angeles (2001-02). He played in the 2001 NHL All-Star Game and won back to back Gold medals with Canada at the World Junior Championships (1994, 1995).
