Timothy Liljegren Agrees to an Extension of Two Years

After the Stanley Cup was awarded on Sunday night, the Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t spend any time getting their offseason preparations underway. On Monday morning, the Maple Leafs signed a two-year contract deal with Timothy Liljegren with an average yearly value of $1.4 million, locking in one of their key young defenseman.

Prior to signing his new contract, Liljegren, who was chosen by Toronto with the 17th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, was a restricted free agent. He is now committed to the Leafs until the 2023–24 season, after which he will continue to be an RFA. It’s a neat little bit of business for a guy who anticipates playing a significant role in the Maple Leafs’ long-term intentions. Liljegren has currently played 61 games and has tallied a total of 5 goals and 23 points.
