Somewhere, Don Cherry must be smiling, because the Canadian Press reports that once-deemed-to-be-redundant (by Ron Wilson) Maple Leafs enforcer Colton Orr inked a two-year extension with Toronto:
Colton Orr signed a new two-year, $1.85 million deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.
The 2012-13 season marked the final year of a four-year deal Orr signed with the Leafs prior to the 2009-10 season worth $1 million per season.
After spending a significant portion of the 2011-12 season with the Leafs' American Hockey League affiliate, the Toronto Marlies, Orr regained his role as the Leafs enforcer last season under head coach Randy Carlyle and new general manager Dave Nonis.
He registered one goal and three assists, registering 155 penalty minutes in 44 regular season games with the Leafs in 2012-13. He would also dress for all seven games of the Leafs' first round playoff series against the Boston Bruins.
