Toronto Maple Leafs News

The Maple Leafs signed Frederik Gauthier to a two-year, $1.35M ($675K AAV) contract extension.

Gauthier was the No.21 overall pick in 2013 but doesn’t project to be much more than an AHLer or fourth line centre. The 23-year-old had just 18 points (7G / 11A) in 57 games with the Toronto Marlies (AHL) in 2018 and has been passed on the depth chart by Par Lindholm, who is expected to centre the Leafs’ fourth line to start next season.

The Maple Leafs re-signed Justin Holl to a two-year deal worth $1.35M ($675M AAV).

Holl was a second round pick in 2010 and made it to the NHL briefly last season. The 26-year-old scored two goals in his only two games with the Maple Leafs, but spent most of the year with the Marlies (AHL), where he had seven goals and 21 assists (28 points) in 60 games. Holl is projected to be the Maple Leafs’ seventh defenseman this season.

The Maple Leafs have signed John Tavares to a seven-year, $77M ($11M AAV) deal.

Tavares walks away from the Islanders after nine seasons, in which he scored 272 goals with 349 assists (621 points) in 669 games. The 27-year-old signs with his childhood team, joining one of the best, young teams in the NHL. Tavares, Auston Matthews and Nazem Kadri is as formidable of a trio down the middle as you will find across the league. Over the last four seasons, Tavares is sixth in the NHL in points (306), tied for sixth in goals (136) and 22nd in assists (170). His cap-hit is now tied with Drew Doughty for the second highest in the NHL.

The Maple Leafs have re-signed Calvin Pickard to a one-year deal worth $800K.

Pickard, 26, was acquired in a trade with the Vegas Golden Knights in early-October and spent the majority of the season in the AHL. Pickard, who is currently No.4 on the Maple Leafs’ goaltending depth chart, was 21-9-1 with a 2.31 GAA, .918 SV% and one shutout in 33 games with the Marlies. He gave up four goals on 27 shots in his only NHL appearance with the Maple Leafs.

The Maple Leafs have re-signed Connor Carrick to a one-year contract worth $1.3 million.

2018 was the most productive season of Carrick’s young career. The 24-year-old right-handed blueliner set career-highs in goals (4), assists (8) and points (12) while appearing in just 47 games for the Maple Leafs. Carrick’s signing suggests that the Maple Leafs won’t bring back Roman Polak and that Carrick will start the season as their third-pairing D-man on the right side.
