Per mapleleafs.nhl.com, the Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that forward Mike Brown has agreed to a three-year contract extension.

Brown, who was set to become a RFA on July 1st, has averaged 10:03 TOI per game on primarily fourth-line and penalty-killing duty.

Despite seeing limited action, he has had a positive impact on the club with his inspired, energetic play.


Originally acquired from the Anaheim Ducks for a 5th round pick (Chris Wagner), Brown has recorded 2 goals, 3 assists, and 41 PIM in 27 games this season while missing 20 games to injury (groin, finger) and 3 to suspension. He is also tied with Tim Brent for the team lead in plus/minus, with a +3 rating.

Per ESPN’s Pierre Lebrun, Brown’s contract will pay $760,000 in 2011-12, and $725,000 in both 2012-13 and 2013-14. In each year, the cap hit will work out to be $736,667.
