The Toronto Maple Leafs continue to fill out their roster for the 2008-09 season.

Toronto announced Thursday that the club has acquired forward Mikhail Grabovski from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for the rights to Greg Pateryn and a second-round draft pick in the 2010 draft.

"Mikhail had tremendous success at the most recent World Hockey Championships," said Fletcher in a statement. "He has great upside and we will look for him to contribute for us right away at the centre position."

A native of Potsdam, Germany, Grabovski was Montreal's fourth choice, 150th overall, in the 2004 draft. The 24-year old scored three goals and six assists in 24 games with Montreal last year.

The Montreal Canadiens on Thursday also signed defenseman Alex Henry to a one-year contract and minor league goaltender Cedrick
Desjardins to a two-year contract.

The Toronto Maple Leafs also announced a trio of signings Thursday. After coming over from the Wild mid-season, Dominic Moore has agreed to a one-year contract. He recorded 14 points in 38 games. Toronto also announced that John Mitchell has agreed to a one-year contract and Greg Scott has agreed to a three-year, entry level contract.
