Maple Leafs Signing Joseph Woll to Multi-Year Extension

The Toronto Maple Leafs will be keeping one of their key pieces around for a good amount of time. According to NHL insider Kevin Weekes, the Maple Leafs are close to signing goaltender Joseph Woll to a three-year contract extension for around $3.5 to $4 million AAV. 

Woll, 25, is entering the final season of his current deal in 2024-25. However, once this new deal is finalized, the Maple Leafs will have their top goalie locked up for multiple more years. 

Woll appeared in 25 games this season with the Maple Leafs, where he had a 12-11-1 record, a .907 save percentage, and a 2.94 goals against average. Overall, it was a solid first full regular season for the Missouri native, and he naturally has created plenty of excitement from Maple Leafs fans about his potential.

Woll was also spectacular for the Maple Leafs during the playoffs, posting a 2-0 record, a 0.86 GAA, and a .964 save percentage in three appearances. He was the main reason why the Maple Leafs forced a Game 7 against the Boston Bruins after being down 3-1. Unfortunately for them, he was unable to play Game 7 due to injury. 

Nevertheless, Woll will be getting a nice raise starting in 2025-26 with this incoming contract extension. We will need to wait and see how well he performs during it from here.
