Leafs sign Muzzin to 4-year extension with $5.62M AAV

Posted On: Feb 24, 2020   |   Posted By: TheScore

The Toronto Maple Leafs have inked defenseman Jake Muzzin to a four-year contract extension with an average annual value of $5.62 million, the team announced Monday. Muzzin, 31, was set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. His new deal includes a no-movement clause for next season that converts to a no-trade clause and then 10-team no-trade in subsequent years, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston. The 6-foot-3 blue-liner has arguably been the Leafs' most consistent defenseman this season despite missing time with a broken foot. Muzzin has mustered 22 points through 52 games in 2019-20 and leads the Maple Leafs in hits (108) and blocked shots (110). He also ranks second on the team in average ice time, logging 21:43 per game. Copyright © 2020 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved. Certain content reproduced under license.
