Toronto Maple Leafs sign unrestricted free-agent winger Jason Blake

The 33-year-old unrestricted free agent had a career-high 40 goals last season while also adding 29 assists for a career-high 69 points in 82 games with the New York Islanders.

The Leafs have for a long time looked for a first-line winger to play with captain Mats Sundin and hope they've found it in the speedy Blake, who also is a good penalty killer.
