Maple Leafs' Nick Robertson: Will join expanded roster
Robertson will be part of the Maple Leafs' expanded roster for the playoffs, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports.
Robertson almost certainly won't see any game action with the big club during the playoffs, but he'll undoubtedly benefit from the experience of going through an unofficial training camp with NHLers preparing for the postseason. The 2019 second-round pick had a fantastic season in the OHL this year, racking up 55 goals and 86 points in 46 games with the Peterborough Petes.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Adam Brooks: Secures two-year extension
Brooks penned a two-year, two-year contract extension with Toronto on Thursday that carries a $725,000 cap hit at the NHL level.
In 29 appearances for the Marlies this season, Brooks notched nine goals and 11 helpers. The center also made his NHL debut in 2019-20 and logged seven games for the Leafs in which he tallied three helpers, two shots and one block while averaging just 7:51 of ice time. If the club allows Kyle Clifford to walk in free agency this offseason, it could open up a spot on the 23-man roster for Brooks heading into next year.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Mikko Lehtonen: Signs one-year deal
Lehtonen agreed to terms on a one-year, entry-level contract with Toronto on Monday.
Lehtonen led all KHL defensemen in goals (17) and points (49) last season while playing for Helsinki Jokerit and will now be making his way to North America. The 26-year-old should immediately compete for a roster spot heading into the 2020-21 campaign. By signing the blueliner to an entry-level deal, the cap-strapped club could decide to let both Cody Ceci and Tyson Barrie walk in free agency this summer.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Jake Muzzin: Set to play once season resumes
Muzzin (hand) will be available once play resumes, telling reporters he "should be ready to go when called upon," Kristen Shilton of TSN.ca reports.
Muzzin missed six games due to his hand problem prior to the league going on hiatus. Additionally, the blueliner was sidelined for 10 outings with a foot injury in early January. With the significant time lost to injury, the Ontario native has thus far posted his lowest point total (23) since the 2012-13 campaign when he was with Los Angeles. If the NHL gets back onto the ice, Muzzin figures to return to being a 20-plus-minute skater and could provide solid fantasy value in DFS formats.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Jason Spezza: Hopes to play in 2020-21
Spezza is hopeful that he'll return to the Maple Leafs for another season in 2020-21, TSN's Kristen Shilton reports.
On a conference call Tuesday, Spezza told reporters "I'm in it for as long as I can be so I can win a Stanley Cup. It's something that I dreamt of as a kid, and I would love nothing more than to do it here in Toronto." Spezza was playing solid hockey as a bottom-six option for the Maple Leafs prior to the NHL's stoppage, totaling nine goals and 25 points while averaging just 10:50 of ice time per contest in 58 appearances. If the 36-year-old pivot does re-sign with Toronto during the offseason, it will almost certainly be on another cheap, one-year deal.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Zach Hyman: Hoping to re-sign beyond current deal
Hyman -- who is signed through the 2020-21 campaign -- would like to stick with Toronto long term, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports.
Hyman almost certainly would have reached the 40-point mark for the third straight year were it not for the league shutdown, though he could still reach that threshold if the league resumes the regular season. The 27-year-old is a relatively cheap option for the cap-strapped Leafs at just $2.25 million AAV.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Alexander Barabanov: Secures one-year deal
Barabanov agreed to terms on a one-year, entry-level contract with Toronto on Tuesday.
Barabanov's deal will kick in for the 2020-21 season, so Leafs fans won't get a look at the Russian winger until next year. Considering the 25-year-old has spent the last five seasons as a full-time player for KHL club St. Petersburg SKA, he likely won't be interested in spending time in the minors, so look for him to earn his spot on the 23-man roster during training camp....

Maple Leafs' Kristians Rubins: Pens entry-level deal
Rubins agreed to terms on a two-year, entry-level contract with Toronto on Wednesday.
Rubins has spent the 2019-20 campaign in the minors with AHL Toronto, for which he has tallied 14 points in 47 contests. The 22-year-old's limited offensive upside will prevent him from becoming a top-end fantasy option, though he could be a decent shutdown defender for the organization.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Filip Kral: Secures entry-level deal
Kral inked a three-year, entry-level contract with Toronto on Wednesday.
In 53 appearances with WHL Spokane this season, Kral racked up 12 goals and 37 helpers (both career highs). Drafted in the fifth round of the 2018 NHL Draft, the blueliner figures to link up with AHL Toronto for the 2020-21 campaign. The Czech native will likely need another year or two adjusting to the professional ranks before getting a look with the Leafs.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Nick Robertson: Will get extended look during camp
Robertson could earn a spot on the 23-man roster ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Robertson has racked up 55 goals and 31 helpers in 46 games with OHL Peterborough this season, making a strong case to the Leafs brass to get a look ahead of next year. Filling a roster spot with a player on his entry-level contract would also help ease some of the cap burden for general manager Kyle Dubas as well. If the 18-year-old Robertson doesn't make the team, he figures to head back to juniors rather than play with AHL Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' John Tavares: Playing at high level
Tavares racked up 26 goals and 60 points in 63 games before the NHL suspended its season in March.
Some owners may be a bit disappointed with Tavares' production this year considering he put up 47 goals and 88 points in 82 games last campaign, but it's hard to complain about a near point-per-game pace. Assuming the NHL ultimately resumes regular-season play, Tavares could still eclipse the 70-point mark for a third consecutive campaign if he stays steady down the stretch, that is if all the remaining 12 games got made up.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Mitch Marner: Living up to big contract
Marner notched 16 goals and 67 points in 59 games before the NHL halted play in March.
Many thought the Maple Leafs may have overpaid when they signed Marner to a monster six-year, $65.4 million contract in September, but he's quickly laid those concerns to rest, averaging over a point per game while logging a whopping 21:33 of ice time per contest this season. At just 22 years old, Marner has yet to hit his prime, so he should only continue to improve over the next few years.... See More ... See Less
Maple Leafs' Auston Matthews: Big leap forward this season
Matthews sits third in the NHL goal race with 47 in 70 games, just one snipe behind David Pastrnak and Alexander Ovechkin.
Matthews' game has taken a big leap this season. He has 10 more goals than he did in almost the same number of games in 2018-19 (68). And there are even rumors he could be considered for a Selke trophy, awarded to the top two-way player in the league. Just take a look at his plus-minus. Sure, it's a maligned stat. But there's a huge swing between minus-9 a year ago and plus-19 this season. Matthews really is a fantasy building block.... See More ... See Less
