Maple Leafs sign Holzer to two-year extension

The Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday announced a two-year contract extension for defenseman Korbinian Holzer. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Holzer, 25, has played 16 games for the Leafs this season scoring two goals and registering 19 minutes in penalties. He recorded his first NHL goal, which was also the game-winner, in the Leafs' 3-2 win at Washington on Feb. 5

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound defenseman is tied for third on the team in blocked shots with 37. He has also skated in 34 games for the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies in 2012-13 collecting a goal, eight points and 28 penalty minutes.

Holzer, a native of Munich, Germany, has represented his country at several international tournaments including the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the 2010 and 2011 IIHF World Championship, and the 2007 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
