(March 22, 2007) -- John Ferguson, vice-president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Thursday that the team has signed forward Kris Newbury to a two-year contract extension.  In keeping with club policy, financial details of the contract were not disclosed.

Newbury, 25, made his NHL debut by playing in 15 games for the Maple Leafs this season. He has scored two goals and two assists, while registering 26 penalty minutes.

Newbury has also skated in 37 games for the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies, collecting 36 points (12 goals, 24 assists), along with 87 penalty minutes.
