Leafs sign Muzzin to four-year extension

TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed signed defenceman Jake Muzzin to a four-year contract extension.

The new deal carries an annual value of over US$5.6 million a season.

The 30-year-old Muzzin has 22 points in 52 games with the Maple Leafs this season, and 38 points in 82 games since joining Toronto in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on Jan. 28, 2019.

The Maple Leafs confirmed the new contract, which had been rumoured for weeks, 15 minutes after the 3 p.m. ET trade deadline.

Toronto was otherwise quiet on trade deadline day, with one minor deal that sent goalie Michael Hutchinson to the Colorado Avalanche for defenceman Calle Rosen.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Feb. 24, 2020.
