The Toronto Maple Leafs re-signed speedy forward Mikhail Grabovski to a three-year deal, the team announced on Thursday.

The contract is worth $8.7 million US total, or $2.9 million US per season.

The 25-year-old had 20 goals and 28 assists for the Leafs last year, his first full season in the NHL, and was third in assists and points for rookies.

After the season ended, Grabovski suited up for Belarus at the 2009 world hockey championships, where he led the team with three goals and six assists in nine games.

Grabovski, who was a restricted free agent, was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the fifth round of the 2004 draft.
