The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Friday that the club has signed first-round draft pick Morgan Rielly to a three-year entry level contract.

The Maple Leafs selected Rielly fifth overall on June 22.

The six-foot, 190-pound defenceman missed most of the 2011-12 season with the WHL's Moose Jaw Warriors because a torn ACL, but still collected 18 points in 18 games.

In 2010-11, Rielly led Moose Jaw in rookie scoring and was second among defencemen with 28 points (6-22-28) in 65 games.

The Vancouver native will represent Canada at the 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge in Yaroslavl, Russia and Halifax later this month.
