Moments ago on Hockey Night in Canada, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported that the Leafs are closing in on an extension with William Nylander, and it could be down as early as this Monday.


Friedman reported that the value over the eight year deal will be $11.5M, making Nylander one of the highest paid players in the NHL. It's a big bet on a player having a career year in a contract season, as Nylander has scored 19 goals and 51 points in just 36 games and significant driven up the expected value of this contract.

And again, it's a big bet from the Toronto Maple Leafs on their core four players, and believing that the deliver on their ultimate goal of a Stanley Cup. It seems like now, we just have to wait and see until the official news of Nylander's extension drops.
