Maple Leafs sign defenceman Justin Holl to three-year extension

NHL insider Justin Bourne joined Alex Seixeiro to discuss what the Canadian teams in the NHL should be focused on entering 2020.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed defenceman Justin Holl to a three-year extension, the team announced Tuesday.

Per the club’s press release, Holl’s new deal is worth $6 million and carries a $2-million cap hit through 2022-23.

This season has seen Holl, 27, thrive in his role as a regular on the Maple Leafs’ blue line. He has registered career-highs across the board in games played (38), assists (10) and points (11) in 2019-20. In 51 career NHL games over parts of three seasons with Toronto, Holl has three goals and 14 points with a plus-11 rating. The Minnesota native has been with the Maple Leafs’ organization since 2015, starting with an AHL contract with the Marlies and then signing an NHL deal a year later and working his way up the franchise’s depth chart.

More to come.
