TORONTO (AP) - John-Michael Liles signed a $15.5 million, four-year extension with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, passing up the chance to test free agency in the summer.

The 31-year-old defenseman is in the final year of a contract that carries a cap hit of $4.2 million.

Liles has been sidelined since Dec. 22 with a concussion and is expected to return to the lineup after the All-Star break.

In 557 games with the Avalanche and Leafs, he has 72 goals and 296 points.
