(June 6, 2007) --  John Ferguson, vice-president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Wednesday that the club has signed forward Nik Antropov to a two-year contract extension.

"Nik has continually progressed and evolved into a power forward who contributes offensively and provides size amongst our top six forwards," said Ferguson. "He is a player we wanted to bring back and who will continue to be a valuable player for us."

Antropov, 27, played 54 games for Toronto in 2006-07 collecting 33 points on 18 goals and 15 assists, along with 44 penalty minutes and a (+8) plus/minus rating.  The native of Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan set career highs in goals, powerplay goals (4) and shots on goal (125).  Over the past two seasons, Antropov has earned a (+21) plus/minus rating, which is the second highest total amongst all Maple Leafs players.

Antropov has played in 374 career games for the Maple Leafs (1999-2007), registering 78 goals, 111 assists for 189 points, along with 361 penalty minutes and (+57) plus/minus rating.  He also represented Kazakhstan at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.  Antropov was originally Toronto's first choice, 10th overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
