Toronto Maple Leafs sign forward Brandon Kozun to a one-year contract

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Brandon Kozun to a one-year contract Friday.

Kozun, 24, split last season between Manchester and Toronto of the American Hockey League. He had 46 points (17 goals, 29 assists) and 70 penalty minutes in 75 games.

The Maple Leafs acquired Kozun last January in a trade with Los Angeles. He was originally selected by the Kings in the sixth round, 179th overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
