Grabovski Signs Contract Extension With Leafs

Brian Burke, President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Tuesday that the hockey club has agreed to terms on a five-year contract with forward Mikhail Grabovski. As per club policy, financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

"We are extremely pleased to have Mikhail under contract for the next five seasons,” said Burke. “His speed and skill are valuable commodities and fit perfectly with our style of play. He leads by example and his work ethic speaks for itself."

Grabovski, 28, has registered 45 points (20 goals, 25 assists), a plus-seven (+7) rating and 18 penalty minutes in 59 games with the Maple Leafs this season. The 5-11, 183-pound centreman currently ranks first on Toronto in plus/minus and third in goals and points in 2011-12, and he was named the NHL’s First Star of the Week for the period ending January 30.

The native of Minsk, Belarus has appeared in 304 career NHL games with Montreal (2006-07 to 2007-08) and Toronto (2008-09 to present), registering 82 goals, 113 assists, 195 points and 188 penalty minutes. The Leafs acquired Grabovski on July 3, 2008 from the Canadiens in exchange for the rights to Greg Pateryn and Toronto’s second round pick in the 2010 Entry Draft. He was originally selected by Montreal in the fifth round, 150th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
