TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Tyler Biggs to a three-year, entry-level contract Thursday.

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.
