Maple Leafs sign Finnish forward Leo Komarov to one-year contract

TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Leo Komarov to a one-year contract, the club announced Tuesday.

The five-foot-11, 198-pound native of Narva, Estonia, was the Leafs' seventh choice in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Komarov, 25, spent the past three seasons with Moscow Dynamo of the Kontinental Hockey League. He played 46 games last season, registering 11 goals and 13 assists with 58 penalty minutes. He ranked second on the team in penalty minutes and third in points.

In 20 playoff games he registered five goals, two assists and seven points with 49 penalty minutes, as Dynamo won their first KHL championship.

Komarov moved to Finland at a young age and has represented the country at the past four IIHF world championships. He was a member of Finland's 2011 world championship gold-medal team and also participated in the 2006 and 2007 world junior championships.
