Maple Leafs Extend Forward Mike Brown

Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke announced on Wednesday that the team has signed forward Mike Brown to a three-year, $2.215 million contract extension.

"We are extremely pleased to have Mike under contract for the next three years," said Burke. "His blend of character, energy and toughness has proved to be a good fit in the overall structure and makeup of our team."

Brown, 25, was acquired from the Anaheim Ducks during the 2010 off season for Toronto's fifth round draft pick (122nd overall) in 2010. Brown has two goals, three assists and 41 penalty minutes in 27 games this season. His plus-3 rating leads the team.

The Northbrook, Illinois native has played in 169 career NHL games with Vancouver, Anaheim and Toronto, scoring 11 goals and six assists for 17 points with 347 penalty minutes.

Brown returned to the Leafs' lineup January 13th after breaking his finger, only to be suspended for three games due to a hit he laid out on Phoenix's Ed Jovanovski. He left last night's game against Florida after taking a hit from Panthers defenceman Keaton Ellerby that kept him from returning due to an upper-body injury.
