Maple Leafs Sign Trio of Forwards
Cliff Fletcher, general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Thursday that the hockey club has signed forwards Dominic Moore, John Mitchell and Greg Scott

Moore, 27, signed a one-year contract with Toronto. He joined the Maple Leafs after being acquired off waivers from the Minnesota Wild last season.  In 38 games with Toronto, Moore registered four goals and 10 assists for 14 points, along with 14 penalty minutes and a plus-seven rating.  In his NHL career, he has played in 224 games for the Rangers, Penguins, Wild and Maple Leafs recording 55 points (22 goals, 33 assists) with 108 penalty minutes.  He was originally the New York Rangers’ second choice, 95th overall in the 2000 Entry Draft.

The Maple Leafs also announced the signing of John Mitchell to a two-year contract.  Mitchell played in 79 games for the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies this past season and earned professional career-highs in goals (20), assists (31), points (51) and penalty minutes (56).  The 23-year-old native of Waterloo, Ontario led the Marlies in both regular season goals and playoff goals (8), as the Marlies advanced to the Calder Cup Conference Final. The Maple Leafs selected the 6-2, 205-pound Mitchell in the fifth round, 158th overall in the 2003 Entry Draft.

Greg Scott signed a three-year entry level contract with the Maple Leafs. The 20-year-old native of Victoria, B.C., played in 72 games for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League this season recording a career-high 75 points (38 goals, 37 assists) along with 56 penalty minutes.  In 2007-08, the 6-0, 188-pound left-winger led the entire WHL with a plus/minus rating of plus-40.  During the playoffs, he played in 12 games, adding five goals, four assists and nine points.
