Brian Burke, president and general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Wednesday that unrestricted free agent Colton Orr has signed with the club. The right-winger signed a four year contract with the Maple Leafs.

Orr, 27, appeared in all 82 games for the New York Rangers in 2008-09 and recorded a goal and four assists while leading the team with a career-high 193 penalty minutes.  His penalty minute total was the third-highest in the NHL behind Daniel Carcillo (Coyotes/Flyers) and Shane O’Brien (Canucks).

In 245 career NHL games with the Bruins and Rangers he has collected four goals and seven assists to go along with 549 minutes in penalties.

The 6-3, 222-pound native of Winnipeg, Manitoba was originally signed by the Boston Bruins as a free agent on September 19, 2001 and he was claimed on waivers by New York on November 29, 2005.
