Brian Burke, general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Thursday that the hockey club has re-signed forward Mikhail Grabovski to a three year contract.

Grabovski, 25, played 78 games for Toronto in 2008-09, registering 48 points on 20 goals and 28 assists, along with 92 penalty minutes. In his first full NHL season, the centre ranked third among all league rookies in assists and points. He led the Leafs with a 16.1% shooting percentage, and was second on the team in penalty minutes and powerplay goals (six-tie).

He represented Belarus at the 2009 World Championships in Switzerland, averaging 27:23 of ice time and leading the team with three goals, six assists and nine points in seven games.

The Leafs acquired Grabovski on July 3, 2008 from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for the rights to Greg Pateryn and Toronto’s second round choice in the 2010 Entry Draft. The native of Potsdam, East Germany was originally Montreal’s fourth choice, 150th overall, in the 2004 Entry Draft.
