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

The 19-year-old from Loveland, Ohio, was Toronto's first-round draft pick in 2011 and played for Miami University last season. In 37 games, Biggs had nine goals, eight assists and 63 penalty minutes.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
