Elliotte Friedman Drops a Massive Update On William Nylander's Extension

The situation of William Nylander is stirring up talk across the NHL.

While some fans believed he might be available on the free agent market at the end of the season, it appears he's getting closer to continuing his journey with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

According to information from renowned journalist Elliotte Friedman, the Swede is expected to agree with the Maple Leafs on a contract close to 100 million in the next few hours.

This would be a deal of 92 million spread over a period of 8 years.


This means an annual salary of 11.5 million per season.

Yes, that's a lot of money, but could the Maple Leafs really afford to lose their current top scorer for absolutely nothing in return at the end of the season?

So far this season, Nylander has collected 54 points, 9 more than Matthews and 14 more than Marner.

The Leafs have once again decided to invest their money in the offensive unit.

The confirmation of this new contract could come as soon as Monday, according to Elliotte Friedman.
