The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Wade Belak to a one year contract extension that runs through the 2007-08 season.

In keeping with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Belak, 30, played 55 games with the Maple Leafs collecting three assists with 109 penalty minutes. He ranked tied for second on the team in penalty minutes behind defenceman Bryan McCabe.

The native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has played 330 NHL games collecting 920 penalty minutes with Colorado, Calgary and Toronto. The Maple Leafs claimed him off waivers from Calgary in 2002 and was originally Colorado's first choice, 12th overall in the 1994 Entry Draft.

This is one of the many things wrong with the Leafs. Belak?! The Leafs don't need him at all. He's slow, as a defenceman he can't play defence, and as a forward he can't play offence. He's an enforcer... and nothing more! There are younger players behind him on the team waiting for a chance, but now some will have to wait 1 more year because this guy wil be ahead of them.

This is nothing more than a waste of money.
