Brian Burke, President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Wednesday that the hockey club has signed forward Tyler Bozak
to a two-year contract.
Bozak, 25, played in all 82 regular season games for the Leafs in 2010-11, collecting 32 points on 15 goals and 17 assists with 14 penalty minutes. He ranked first on the team in faceoff win percentage (54.6) and shootout goals (3), and tied for third in powerplay goals (6) and game-winning goals (4). In 119 career games with the Leafs, he has scored 23 goals and 36 assists for 59 points. The centre became just the second player in franchise history to score a 3-on-5 shorthanded goal when he accomplished the feat on April 6 at New Jersey.
The Leafs originally signed the Regina, Saskatchewan native as a free agent on April 4, 2009.
