Toronto Maple Leafs Player News: All Positions

News: Ceci has been skating on the top pairing with Morgan Rielly.
Impact: Ceci will be a stay-at-home pillar that will allow Rielly to roam with Toronto's elite forwards at even strength. The young blueliner needs to step up his game to earn a lucrative next contract. Ceci has talent, but his game is a better fit in the real arena than in a fantasy one, especially given his role.
News: Rielly may skate with newcomer Cody Ceci to start the season.
Impact: The two lined up together early in camp, with Ceci playing the role of a steady, defend-the-house player to Rielly's offensive-minded approach. This pairing should reap dividends for Rielly at even strength. And he should be able to deliver exceptional special-teams production reprising his role on the top power-play unit. His game may not be quite Norris-caliber yet, but Rielly could be in the conversation in a couple years.
News: Nylander is back on the wing beside Auston Matthews this preseason.
Impact: Nylander never got in a groove last season after holding out until early December. After a stellar World Championship in May, Willie is showing a hunger and motivation this preseason that will take his game to new heights. Nylander wants to be a consistent dominant force on the ice. If he pulls that off, he'll be a fantasy steal.
News: Andersen will start between the pipes in Tuesday's exhibition game against Ottawa, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.
Impact: Andersen was a fantastic fantasy option last season, compiling a 36-16-7 record in 60 appearances while posting a 2.77 GAA and .917 save percentage. The Danish netminder is locked in as the Maple Leafs' workhorse heading into 2019-20, and should make at least 60 starts in goal for a fourth consecutive campaign.
News: Aberg (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for the Leafs' preseason clash with Ottawa on Wednesday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Impact: Aberg -- and the rest of his training camp group -- will watch from the press box Tuesday before taking the ice for Wednesday's matchup with the Senators. After signing with the Leafs during the offseason, the winger is far from guaranteed a roster spot for Opening Night and could find himself on the waiver wire if he doesn't perform during training camp.
News: Marner signed a six-year, $65.4 million contract ($10.9 million AAV) with the Maple Leafs on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Impact: Marner's new deal comes after a season in which he set new personal bests in goals (26) and assists (68) while averaging 19:49 of ice time in 82 appearances. The fourth overall pick from the 2015 draft has been a stud on the man advantage throughout his young career, racking up at least 21 power-play points in each of his three seasons. Marner's new contract will keep him with Toronto through the 2024-25 season, at which point he'll become an unrestricted free agent.
News: There has been some progress in the contract talks between Marner and the Maple Leafs, reports Chris Johnston of Sportsnet.ca. The winger was not with the team as it opened training camp Friday.
Impact: No specifics were provided, but Thursday's ultimatum from the team that it would no longer provide any updates on the contract impasse clearly put the pressure square on Marner's camp. The young winger, who is from the Toronto area, loves playing for the Leafs, but has faced growing criticism in social media from fans that perceive him to be greedy. The Maple Leafs opened camp Friday and it would be good for all parties for Marner to sign and get there quickly. It becomes more and more challenging for any player to get up to game speed the longer they are absent from camp. It remains to be seen if there will be compromises on dollars, term or both, but this is good news for all, including fantasy owners that are preparing to bank on this young stud as a team pillar.
News: Marner was not listed on the Leafs' roster when training camp opened Thursday.
Impact: Marner's contract impasse has officially hit holdout status with the two sides still unable to reach a deal. The winger's camp is reportedly seeking a short-term deal after turning down offers of seven or eight years with upward of an $11 million AAV. A bridge deal would allow Marner to capitalize on expected revenue increases sooner than teammate Auston Matthews, who is locked in through 2023-24. Maple Leafs' fans will no doubt be having flashbacks to last season's protracted contract dispute with William Nylander. For fantasy owners, Marner's 94-point 2018-19 campaign makes him an elite fantasy option, despite lingering concerns regarding his availability for Opening Night versus Ottawa on Oct. 2.
News: Dermott (shoulder) is slated to be sidelined for the first 12-14 games of the season according to coach Mike Babcock, David Alter of The Canadian Press reports.
Impact: After undergoing shoulder surgery, Dermott was expected to be out of action for six months, but this updated timeline from Babcock could see the blueliner return in late October. Dermott's vacated spot on the blue line will be a hotly contested training camp battle, with Jordan Schmaltz, Ben Harpur and Justin Holl all in the mix. In 64 games last season, Dermott notched four goals and 13 helpers, both career highs, and he should be able to push for the 20-point mark despite his late start to the year.
News: Wilson (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined for most of training camp, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Even fully fit, Wilson was going to be hard pressed to break into the Leafs' lineup for Opening Night against the Senators on Oct. 2. There is an outside chance he could still end up on the 23-man roster, but fellow new additions Pontus Aberg, Ilya Mikheyev and Kalle Kossila, not to mention returner Frederik Gauthier, will likely pass Wilson over while he is recovering. Look for Wilson to begin the year in the minors with AHL Toronto, and likely spend the bulk of the season there as well.
News: Robertson led the Leafs' prospect team with five points (four goals, one assist) at the recent Traverse City tournament.
Impact: It was an impressive performance for a kid who doesn't turn 18 until September 11. Robertson played against several guys who are considered top prospects, some of whom have already gotten NHL experience. The tournament brought out the best in him and he clearly elevated his game. Robertson will be headed back to the OHL this season, but he has made a strong impression so far.
News: Kivihalme scored three goals in two games at the recent Traverse City prospect tournament.
Impact: He inked a one-year deal with the Leafs in May and that's looking like a steal right now. Kivihalme, 24, was a calm force on the blue line. He set the pace and was super patient on every shift. His anticipation and reads were outstanding -- at one point, Kivihalme stepped up at the perfect moment to intercept a Red Wings' pass in the neutral zone, drove the offensive zone and fired a beauty goal. The Leafs need help on the blue line and Kivihalme is one of the team's more mature prospects. He may not make the squad out of camp, but he definitely could get a few cups of coffee with the Leafs this season.
News: Woll fractured a finger and missed the recent Traverse City rookie tournament, reports Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca.
Impact: Woll is a big, lanky goalie (6-foot-4, 202 lbs) who made more than 30 starts in three straight seasons at Boston College. Last season, he put up a solid 2.41 GAA and .919 save percentage on an Eagles squad that won just 14 games. Woll was expected to use the Traverse City tourney to strut his stuff against Ian Scott, the Leafs' other young goalie prospect. One is likely to be the AHL Toronto Marlies starter, while the other will end up with the Newfoundland Growlers (ECHL). It's uncertain how long this injury will affect Woll, but Scott already has a head start on him for the AHL gig.
News: Tavares (oblique) is expected to be a full participant at Toronto's training camp, which begins Thursday, Mark Zwolinski of The Toronto Star reports.
Impact: Tavares suffered an oblique strain while training for the IIHF World Championship in May, but that injury was never expected to impact his availability for training camp. The 28-year-old logged his best season yet as a pro in 2018-19, setting career highs in goals (47) and points (88) while playing all 82 games, and will be an elite fantasy option in 2019-20.
News: Wilson will miss part of Toronto's training camp due to a hamstring injury, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Impact: Wilson was already a longshot to be included in the lineup for the Maple Leafs' regular-season opener against the Senators on Oct. 2, and this injury certainly won't help his chances. Another update on the 28-year-old winger's status should emerge once he's cleared to join his teammates on the ice at camp, which will get underway Sept. 13.
News: The Leafs are optimistic Marner will be signed and in camp when it opens, reports TSN.ca.
Impact: Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas said the team has continued to have dialogue with Marner's agent as recently as last week. "I don't think we want anybody to miss any day or training camp, period," said Dubas. "So we'll continue to work towards that and remain hopeful." Marner is among several restricted free agents around the NHL that remain without a contract 10 days before camps open.
News: Hyman (knee) worked with Maple Leafs skating consultant Barb Underhill on Tuesday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Impact: It isn't clear if this is the first time Hyman has been able to skate since undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL in late April, but either way, it's a positive sign that he's still on track for an early October return to action. The 27-year-old will likely miss all of Toronto's training camp, but it appears there's an outside chance that he'll be ready to rock for the Maple Leafs' Opening Night matchup with Ottawa on Oct. 2. Once given the green light, Hyman, who notched 21 goals and 41 points in 71 games last campaign, will slot into a top-six role.
News: Marner's camp has had discussions with the ZSC Lions of the NLA about a potential contract for the 2019-20 campaign, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Impact: This is almost certainly just a negotiating tactic, as there's next to no chance that Marner actually ends up signing a contract with the Lions, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him head to Switzerland to train with the team in early September if he still hasn't reached a deal with the Maple Leafs prior to training camp. Either way, it's certainly worth noting that at this point it appears that Marner's holdout could end up extending into the regular season.
News: Matthews will get a bit more ice time in 2019-2020, reports Matt Larkin of The Hockey News.
Impact: "[Matthews] should be right around the 19-minute mark," said Leafs coach Mike Babcock of his young star. "I think that's where [Auston's] the best, for sure ... he's earned the right over time as he's gotten better and better to earn more and more." Matthews averaged 18:33 of ice time in 68 games last season and that increased to 19:47 in seven playoff games. The 19-minute average means some nights will be 18 while others will be 20. Even one more shift a game on average means a few more solid offensive chances. And that may get him close to his first 50-goal season...if he can stay healthy.
News: Read signed a professional tryout offer with the Leafs on Friday, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
Impact: Read spent the majority of the 2018-19 campaign in the minors, notching 16 goals and 37 points in 61 games with AHL Iowa, but he also made 12 appearances at the NHL level with the Wild, scoring one goal over that span while averaging 11:45 of ice time per contest. The 33-year-old hasn't eclipsed the 20-point mark since 2015-16, so even if he makes Toronto's roster, it's highly unlikely that he'll have any fantasy value.
News: Schmaltz was brought in by Toronto from St. Louis in exchange for Andreas Borgman.
Impact: Schmaltz will likely be given the opportunity to show his new organization what he can bring to the table, but considering the team has already acquired Tyson Barrie, Cody Ceci and Ben Harpur, it seems unlikely he will make the Opening Night lineup versus Ottawa on Oct. 2.
News: Kossila signed a two-year, two-way contract with Toronto on Wednesday.
Impact: While Kossila will certainly be given a chance to secure a spot on the 23-man roster during training camp, it seems like a longshot due to the team also adding fellow centers Alex Kerfoot, Jason Spezza and Nick Shore during the offseason. The 26-year-old Kossila's ability to play wing could help him make a case, but more likely than not, he will start the year in the minors with the Marlies.
News: Gaudet signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday.
Impact: Gaudet spent the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign with AHL Milwaukee, notching eight goals and 25 points in 50 games. The 26-year-old forward will likely stick with Toronto's minor-league affiliate for most, if not all of the upcoming season, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on him.
News: Aberg (undisclosed) penned a one-year, $700,000 deal with Toronto on Wednesday.
Impact: Aberg was a flop for Minnesota last season, as he managed just six points in 22 outings and missed the final five games of the year due to injury. As such, it didn't come as a shock to see the Wild opt to let the winger hit free agency, rather than issue him a qualifying offer. Toronto will be the fifth organization the 25-year-old finds himself playing for since breaking into the league during the 2016-17 campaign. If Aberg can't find his grove will the Leafs, it may be his last opportunity to cement himself as an NHL player.
News: Wilson agreed to terms on a one-year, $700,000 contract with Toronto on Wednesday.
Impact: After two seasons without an NHL appearance, Wilson played in 50 games for Pittsburgh last year, in which he tallied two goals, six assists and 54 shots while averaging just 7:37 of ice time. The 28-year-old is far from a lock for ice time with the Leafs and will have to make his case with a strong showing in training camp. Even if he is in the lineup for Opening Night versus Ottawa on Oct. 2, the winger will almost certainly find himself serving as a healthy scratch periodically throughout the 2019-20 campaign.
News: Clarkson (back) was traded to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday in exchange for Garret Sparks. The Leafs also acquired a 2020 fourth-round pick in the deal.
Impact: Toronto was able to make a savvy-cap move, taking on Clarkson's $5.25 million cap hit for the next two seasons, with the ability to place him on the long-term injured reserve list. The move allows the Leafs to build a roster with a projected cap hit up to $92.5 million, while dealing with Clarkson and Nathan Horton's contracts on LTIR. This move is in light of Mitch Marner still unsigned, and gives the team more flexibility as the two sides work towards a solution.
News: Neuvirth (lower body) will join Toronto on a professional tryout for training camp, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Impact: Neuvirth dealt with a lower-body issue for much of the 2018-19 campaign, which is likely why the team is hesitant to sign him outright. The club does have both Michael Hutchinson and Garret Sparks as backup options for Frederik Andersen, but Neuvirth would provide a more veteran presence.
News: Marner has talked to several teams about a possible offer sheet, reports Aaron Portzline of The Athletic. The list includes Columbus.
Impact: Marner has made the rounds with several teams -- who wouldn't when given the chance? But he seems to remain committed to the Leafs who would probably match any offer anyway. The Leafs seem to be digging in, looking for a longer term, and Marner's camp is using Auston Matthews' massive five-year deal as a benchmark. This could go on for a while.
News: Ceci inked a one-year, $4.5 million contract with Toronto on Thursday.
Impact: Ceci was acquired by the Leafs from the Sens as part of the Nikita Zaitsev trade. The Ottawa native joins a revamped blue line that also added Tyson Barrie, Ben Harpur and Kevin Gravel during the offseason. The 24-year-old tied his career best 26 points last year and should be capable of pushing for the 30-point mark this year.
News: Kerfoot agreed to terms on a four-year, $14 million contract with Toronto on Thursday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Impact: Kerfoot -- who was acquired as part of the Tyson Barrie deal -- figures to take on a bottom-six role with the Leafs, though he could still see time on the power play. With Colorado, 16 of the Vancouver native's 42 points came with the man advantage. Despite technically being a third liner, the youngster could find himself playing alongside Jason Spezza and William Nylander, which should set him up for a third consecutive 40-plus point campaign.
News: Kerfoot was traded to the Leafs in exchange for Nazem Kadri, Calle Rosen and a third-round pick in 2020, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. The Leafs also acquired defenseman Tyson Barrie in the deal.
Impact: In a blockbuster move between two playoff teams, Kerfoot will head north of the boarder to be added to a youthful nucleus. The 25-year-old has racked up at least 42 points in each of his last two seasons with Colorado, and averaged 2:16 of power-play time with the club. Kerfoot will likely play wing with a loaded center depth chart for the Leafs. He was also a restricted free agent this season, so expect the team to start working on a long-term deal once the trade finalizes.
News: Barrie was traded to Toronto along with Alex Kerfoot and a 2020 sixth-round pick in exchange for Nazem Kadri, Calle Rosen and a 2020 third-round selection Monday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Impact: In addition, Colorado will retain half of Barrie's $5.5 million cap hit this season. The 27-year-old blueliner is coming off a career-high 59-point campaign last season. He should see plenty of power-play time and eat up minutes as a top-four defenseman in Toronto. Barrie will be an unrestricted free agent next season.
News: Gravel inked a one-year, $700,000 contract with Toronto on Monday, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
Impact: Gravel joins Cody Ceci and Ben Harpur on a revamped Leafs' blue line that figures to see at least three new faces this season. The 27-year-old Gravel split time between the NHL and AHL last season, logging just 36 games for the Oilers as a result. When the defenseman was in the lineup, he averaged a mere 14:43 of ice time, but should see an uptick in games and minutes with Toronto.
News: Shore secured a one-year, $750,000 deal with Toronto on Monday, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Shore spent the 2018-19 campaign in the KHL with Magnitogorsk, in which he tallied three goals, 13 helpers and 21 PIM in 37 appearances. While the 26-year-old should be able to land a spot on the 23-man roster, minutes may be hard to come by outside of the penalty kill, which gives him mid-range fantasy value, at best.
News: Spezza signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with the Maple Leafs on Monday.
Impact: The 36-year-old joins his hometown team to advance his NHL career for a 17th NHL season. With an elite crop of centers -- including John Tavares, Auston Matthews and William Nylander -- occupying the top six for the Buds, fantasy owners shouldn't expect Spezza to wiggle his way into a position that would yield plentiful returns in the fantasy realm, but the celebrated pivot does have plenty of experience working on the man advantage. With Spezza's best days behind him, you can get him for pennies on the dollar in fantasy drafts this fall.
News: Agostino signed a two-year, one-way contract with the Maple Leafs on Monday, Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports. The deal is worth $1.4 million.
Impact: Agostino chipped in six goals and 18 assists between the Canadiens and Devils this past season. He's sampled power-play action in his five-year NHL career, and Maple Leafs GM Kyle Dubas will hope to get key bottom-six minutes from this 27-year-old forward who will not break the bank from a salary cap standpoint.
News: Luchuk was traded to the Maple Leafs from the Senators, along with Cody Ceci, Ben Harpur and a 2020 third-round pick, in a swap for Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown and Michael Carcone.
Impact: Luchuk split time between the AHL and ECHL last season, so don't be surprised to see him spend another year or two continuing his development in the minors. When he was with AHL Belleville, the 22-year-old managed just four goals and five helpers in 27 contests.
News: Harpur was brought in by the Leafs from the Senators, along with Cody Ceci, Aaron Luchuk and a 2020 third-round pick, in a swap for Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown, and Michael Carcone.
Impact: Harpur played in a career-high 51 games last season and could be a regular on the blue line this upcoming season. Even if the 23-year-old plays in all 82 contests, his offensive upside is limited and he likely will top out around the 10-point mark. The Ontario native could offer some fantasy value in deeper formats that account for hits and blocks.
News: Ceci joins Toronto from Ottawa, along with Ben Harpur, Aaron Luchuk and a 2020 third-round pick, in exchange for Nikita Zaitsev, Connor Brown and Michael Carcone.
Impact: Ceci set a career high last season in assists (19) and matched his best point total (26) from 2015-16. The defender was a minimal factor on the power play for the Sens, but could find himself taking on a more predominant role with the Leafs. With a more high-powered offense around him, the 24-year-old could push for the 30-point mark this year.
News: Marincin signed a one-year contract worth $700,000 with Toronto on Saturday.
Impact: Marincin spent the majority of the season in the press box or unavailable, drawing into just 24 games for the Maple Leafs last season. Despite only five points and a minus-4 rating in those tilts, Toronto will give him another go around with the club in 2019-20.
News: Johnsson inked a four-year, $13.6 million contract extension with Toronto on Friday.
Impact: Johnson is coming off his first full NHL season during which he racked up 20 goals, 23 helpers and 130 shots while averaging 13:40 of ice time per contest in 73 appearances. The Swede spent parts of the 2018-19 campaign in a top-line role alongside John Tavares and Mitch Marner. If he can hold onto that plum assignment, the winger could top his rookie campaign and offer high-end fantasy value.
News: Kapanen agreed to terms on a three-year, $9.6 million contract extension with Toronto on Friday.
Impact: It's a solid bridge deal for Kapanen, who is just coming off the entry-level deal he signed with the Penguins in 2014. The 22-year-old set career highs across the board this season, including goals (20), assists (24) and shots (174). The winger figures to slot into a top-six role heading into the 2019-20 campaign and could push for the 50-point mark this year, especially if he can expand his role on the power play.
News: Hutchinson signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Maple Leafs that will pay him $700,000, Sporting News Canada reports.
Impact: Hutchinson served as a minor-league and backup goalie for Toronto last season. By inking Hutchinson to a one-way deal, Toronto could be indicating it views him as a primary backup option to Frederik Andersen for the upcoming season.
News: McAdam wasn't given a qualifying offer and will become a free agent, Christ Johnston from Sportsnet reports.
Impact: The Penn State product hasn't been close to making his NHL debut in his career, suiting up in both the ECHL and AHL. McAdam will find a new team, after going 10-5-1 to go along with a 2.62 GAA and .911 save percentage in 19 ECHL games last season.
News: Marner was given a qualifying offer by the Leafs on Tuesday.
Impact: This news was expected, considering the Maple Leafs didn't want to lose Marner for nothing once July 1 hits. Marner and the team are expected to begin tense contract negotiations once he becomes a free agent. There are rumors that Marner wants at least $11 million per season and likely a five-year term like Auston Matthews, but the Leafs would love to sign the winger on a deal for about $9.5 million. No matter which team Marner suits up for in 2019-20, he'll certainly be a hot commodity in the fantasy realm.
News: The Leafs extended a qualifying offer to Kapanen on Tuesday.
Impact: Even though Kapanen was issued the qualifying offer, reports earlier suggested that him and the team had agreed in principle on a contract extension. The Finnish-born player was due for a raise, considering he produced a 20-goal, 44-point season in 2018-19. Kapanen should be expected to produce at an even higher level next campaign.
News: Johnsson was issued a qualifying offer from the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
Impact: This news comes as a formality so that the team can maintain the rights of Johnsson while negotiating a longer-term deal. It was reported Saturday that Johnsson is expected to sign a four-year extension with the Leafs worth $3.4 million. The Swede will likely grow into a larger role, especially on the power play, after he scored 20 goals and 43 points in 73 NHL games last season.
News: The Leafs extended a qualifying offer to Carcone on Tuesday.
Impact: The versatile forward will get a base salary of $700,000 in both the NHL and the AHL, with the latter more likely, considering he hasn't played an NHL game in his career. The 23-year-old did however put up 44 points in 62 games for the AHL's Utica Comets last season. Carcone will most likely start his year in the AHL again, should he sign the offer.
News: Johnsson is expected to soon sign an extension with the Maple Leafs, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports. The deal is expected to be four years at a $3.4 million AAV.
Impact: Toronto was able to unload Patrick Marleau's albatross contract at the draft by also sending a first-rounder to Carolina, clearing out the space to potentially sign three key RFAs in Johnsson, Kasperi Kapanen and Mitch Marner. The 24-year-old Johnsson earned his extension with a 20-goal, 43-point campaign in 2018-19.
News: Abramov was drafted 115th overall by the Maple Leafs at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.
Impact: With the success rate of Russian CHL players being poor, Abramov faces an uphill climb to be a contributor at the NHL level. He was productive (16 goals, 54 points in 62 games) in his first North American campaign and was named to the QMJHL All-Rookie team. Abramov is a talented player and a smooth puck handler, but he simply may not be dynamic enough offensively to make up for his lack of size. Toronto is hoping Abramov can add 15 pounds of muscle to his frame and still manage to get around the offensive zone in short order.
News: Kokkonen was drafted 84th overall by the Maple Leafs at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.
Impact: In a draft that is seemingly full of defenders with questionable hockey IQ, Kokkonen has no such issues. He might not be the most talented rearguard available, but he thinks the game so well that he has a chance to be a useful contributor for an NHL club. Kokkonen plays the type of calm and steady game that often goes unnoticed and underappreciated. He's more comfortable in the defensive zone than the offensive zone, but his vision is underrated and he makes a crisp first pass to get out of trouble. Expect the 18-year-old Finn to eventually give Toronto plenty of years of solid, unheralded service.
News: Robertson was drafted 53rd overall by the Maple Leafs at the 2019 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.
Impact: Robertson is an easy first-round offensive talent. He can generate scoring chances seemingly at will and he will often do so in a flashy, highlight-reel manner. Robertson actually plays too hard in some instances. He is consistently the first guy in on the forecheck and as a result he often doesn't have the energy to make a play during the later stages of a shift. His shot is one of the very best in the draft and he is an exceptional playmaker, so there is a ton to work with here if he can be just a bit more economical with his gas tank. If Toronto can get Robertson to play just a tad smarter, the payoff here figures to be substantial.
News: Kapanen and the Leafs have agreed in principle to a contract extension, reports Bob McKenzie of TSN.
Impact: It won't be finalized until Mitch Marner's deal is done, but it looks like a three-year deal with an AAV in the $3.2M to $3.4M range. Kapanen was due a raise after a 20-goal, 44-point season last year. It looks like good value for the speedster, at least on the surface.
