(NLL) - After being granted unrestricted free agency following the disbandment of the Orlando Titans, Pat Maddalena signed a one-year deal with the Toronto Rock on Thursday.

Maddalena played four seasons with the Titans franchise, scoring 119 goals and 308 points in 62 regular season games.  He was also a key part of Orlando's run to the East Division title in 2009.

The three-time 40-goal scorer still feels he can be a valuable part of a National Lacrosse League team that is gunning for a championship.

"I hope my energy on offense can help contribute to more goals this season for the entire offence," said the Niagara Falls, Ontario native.  "I am a different player than I was five years ago in many ways.  My commitment to the game away from playing has increased. Watching film, working out and playing with my stick more often are important parts of competing at the highest level."

An injury through the early stages of training camp last season with the Titans kept the 32-year-old Maddalena from being as prepared as he would have liked to have been at the start of last season.

"I am confident that with hard work and a committed training camp, I can help the offence produce even more goals," added Maddalena.  "The only statement that I truly care about making is winning the Champion's Cup."
