TORONTO - The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed prospect Matt Frattin to a two-year entry level contract.

Fresh of his appearance in this year's NCAA's Frozen Four with the University of North Dakota, the 23-year-old Frattin is expected to be in Toronto's lineup for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Montreal Canadiens.

The Edmonton native was originally selected by the Maple Leafs in the 2007 draft, going 99th with the club's second overall pick.

Frattin, a finalist for this year's NCAA Hobey Baker Award, played 44 games for the Fighting Sioux this season and led the NCAA with 36 goals. The 6-0, 200-pound forward also ranked first on North Dakota in points (60).
