(June 7, 2007) John Ferguson, vice-president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Thursday that the club has re-signed defenceman Staffan Kronwall (STAH-fuhn, KRAWN-wahl) to a two-year contract extension.

Kronwall, 24, began the 2006-07 season with the Maple Leafs, but was assigned to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League (AHL) on November 14. He played 47 games for the Marlies, collecting 17 points (3 goals, 14 assists) with 32 penalty minutes. Following the conclusion of the AHL regular season he was named the Marlies ‘Best Defenceman.' 

The native of Jarfalla, Sweden split the 2005-06 season between the Maple Leafs and the Marlies. Kronwall made his NHL debut with the Maple Leafs on October 29, 2005 versus the Ottawa Senators, eventually playing 34 games and registering one assist for the parent club. He was Toronto's ninth choice, 285th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
