Maple Leafs sign OHL leading scorer Brown to entry-level contract

TORONTO - Connor Brown took a break from lighting up the OHL to sign a three-year, entry-level contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Brown is overshadowing elite prospect and Erie Otters teammate Connor McDavid this season with his league-leading 46 points on 19 goals and 27 assists. That's a step up from when he was a point-a-game player last year.

The Leafs selected Brown in the sixth round of the 2012 draft, 156th overall. That was a year after he played for the St. Michael's Buzzers of the Ontario Junior Hockey League.

Brown is considered one of the Leafs' top prospects, but like many others is projected to be some time away from reaching the NHL.

The 5-11 winger is Erie's captain and is also playing for the Team OHL against Russia in the 2013 Subway Super Series.
