Leafs Sign Granberg To Three-Year Deal

Brian Burke, President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Thursday that the hockey club has signed defenceman Petter Granberg (PEH-tuhr GRAN-buhrg) to a three-year entry level contract.

Granberg, a 19-year-old native of Gallivare, Sweden, played this past season for Skelleftea AIK of the Swedish Elite League (SEL). He registered four points (one goal, three assists) and 10 penalty minutes in 38 regular season games. Granberg also appeared in 19 playoff games, as Skelleftea AIK were SEL championship finalists. He ranked second on the club in hits (40) and posted a goal, an assist and 12 penalty minutes.

Granberg won a gold medal with Sweden at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship in Alberta, collecting one assist and four penalty minutes in five games. The 6-3, 205-pound defenceman was selected by the Maple Leafs in the fourth round, 116th overall, in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
