Toronto Maple Leafs Re-Sign Max Domi to Multi-Year Deal

Max Domi was one of the Toronto Maple Leafs' top pending UFAs as we inch closer to July 1. They were working hard to get him signed, and now it has come to fruition.

After Elliotte Friedman reported that a Domi extension was on the way, Chris Johnston reported that the Maple Leafs have signed the skilled winger to a four-year extension with a $3.75 million AAV.

Hearing that the Maple Leafs are keeping Domi around is not surprising at all. He fit in wonderfully with them this past season and cemented himself a spot in their top six as the campaign rolled on. In addition, he gave them plenty of grit, which is something that the Maple Leafs were and still are actively looking for more of. 

Domi also made it quite clear that he wanted to remain with the Maple Leafs. Now, he has gotten his wish, and he should remain a key part of their roster for the next handful of years because of it. 

Domi, 29, appeared in 80 regular-season games for the Maple Leafs this past season, where he had nine goals, 47 points, 118 penalty minutes, and a plus-10 rating. In addition to this, he had one goal and three helpers in seven playoff games. 

Overall, this deal for Domi is one that should be good for both the player and the team. Domi will finally get some much-needed job security and a raise, while the Maple Leafs are keeping one of their key forwards around for multiple years at a reasonable price.
