Maple Leafs sign forward Jamie Devane to two-year contract

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple have signed forward Jamie Devane to a two-year contract.

Devane, 23, played two games for the Maple Leafs last season, going scoreless. The six-foot-five, 217-pound forward made his NHL debut Oct. 5 versus the Ottawa Senators.

Devane also played 55 games for the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League last season, collecting eight points (four goals, four assists) and leading the team with 146 penalty minutes.

The native of Mississauga, Ont., was selected by Toronto in the third round, 68th overall, at the 2009 draft.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
