TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Maple Leafs signed checking-line winger Mike Brown to a three-year contract extension Wednesday that will pay him $2,215,000 through the 2013-14 season.

The 25-year-old Brown is in the final year of a contract that pays him $575,000. He'll earn $760,000 next season and $725,000 each of the following two years.

Brown has two goals and three assists in 26 games for the Maple Leafs this season. He suffered an undisclosed upper-body injury in Toronto's 4-3 shootout win over Florida on Tuesday.

Brown was acquired from Anaheim in for a fifth-round pick at the entry draft last June.

Toronto GM Brian Burke said in a statement that Brown's "blend of character, energy and toughness has proven to be a good fit in the overall structure and makeup of our team."
