Toronto Maple Leafs Free Agency 2024

Jul 1, 2024

As Free Agency starts on this Canada Day Eh, The Toronto Maple Leafs are hard at work to keep pieces from last season together. 

Max Domi

The Toronto Maple Leafs have successfully re-signed forward Max Domi to a new four-year extension with the Maple Leafs worth $3.75 million.

Domi had originally signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Maple Leafs last offseason. This extension prevents Domi from becoming an unrestricted free agent and keeps him with the Maple Leafs through the 2027-28 season. The re-signing of Domi is seen as a significant move for the Maple Leafs, as it secures a valuable forward for the next four years at a reasonable cap hit. This deal allows Toronto to maintain offensive depth while still having the flexibility to address other needs in free agency.

 Joseph Woll 

Joseph Woll has signed a three-year extension with the Maple Leafs worth $10.98 million, with an average annual value (AAV) of $3.66 million. The new contract for Woll will begin in the 2025-26 season. Woll is entering the final year of his current three-year contract for the 2024-25 season, which he signed with the Maple Leafs in early 2022. At 25 years old, Woll posted a 12-11-1 record with a 2.94 goals-against average in the previous season. This extension demonstrates the Maple Leafs’ commitment to Woll as a key part of their goaltending future. By securing him for three additional years beyond his current contract, Toronto has solidified its goaltending situation through the 2027-28 season.

Chris Tanev

Chris Tanev has signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs, at a deal worth $27 million, the contract carries an AAV of $4.5 million. Tanev was acquired by the Maple Leafs on June 29, 2024, in a trade with the Dallas Stars. Toronto sent forward Max Ellis and a seventh-round pick in the 2026 NHL Draft to Dallas in exchange for Tanev.

This past season, Tanev played for both the Calgary Flames and Dallas Stars, recording 19 points (3 goals, 16 assists) in 82 regular-season games. After being traded to Dallas, he added 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists) in 19 games. This signing represents a significant addition to the Maple Leafs’ defensive corps, bringing in a veteran presence with playoff experience to bolster their blue line for the next six seasons.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Brad Treliving continues to help bolster the Buds blueline by signing Oliver Ekman-Larsson, who agreed to a four-year contract with the Maple Leafs that carries an AAV of $3.5 million.

The contract includes a 16-team no-trade clause. During the 2023-24 season with the Florida Panthers, Ekman-Larsson played 80 games, scoring 9 goals and recording 32 points. He also contributed 2 goals and 6 points in 24 playoff games as the Panthers won their first Stanley Cup. At 32 years old, Ekman-Larsson brings significant NHL experience to the Maple Leafs, having played 982 career games with 144 goals and 471 points across his time with the Arizona Coyotes, Vancouver Canucks, and Florida Panthers.

This signing is a solid addition to the Maple Leafs defence corps, bringing in a veteran presence with offensive capabilities and playoff experience. The deal appears to be a strategic move by Toronto to bolster its blue line while maintaining reasonable cap flexibility.

Anthony Stolarz

Joesph Woll gets a fellow American to help him between the pipes as Toronto has signed Anthony Stolarz to a contract. Stolarz has agreed to a two-year contract with the Maple Leafs, worth approximately $2.5 million.

Anthony Stolarz is 30 years old, from New Jersey, and stands at 6’6″ and 240 lbs. Stolarz is coming off a Stanley Cup with the Florida Panthers and is coming back to Ontario where he played his junior hockey with the OHLs London Knights.

This signing addresses the Maple Leafs’ need for goaltending depth, providing a veteran presence to pair with Joseph Woll. Stolarz’s size and experience make him a potentially valuable addition to Toronto’s goaltending tandem for the next two seasons.

Matt Murray

The Toronto Maple Leafs have re-signed goaltender Matt Murray to a new contract, worth $875,000. The Thunder Bay native has been with the Maple Leafs organization previously. This appears to be a low-risk, potentially high-reward signing for the Maple Leafs, given the relatively low salary and can be sent to the Marlies.

The re-signing of Murray comes alongside the signing of Anthony Stolarz, indicating that the Maple Leafs are addressing their goaltending depth. This move suggests that the Maple Leafs are looking to maintain some continuity in their goaltending corps while also managing their salary cap effectively. Murray’s previous experience with the team likely played a role in this decision.

Now Leafs Nation, still a lot of work to do as this may mean nothing if they run it back with the core, “Trade Mitch”. So let’s wait and see what else Brad and Co have planned on this Canada Day.

Griff Bordignon

Hi, my name is Griff and I'm a complete sports nut. I love to play sports, watch sports and most importantly bet on sports too. If I'm not watching or betting on sports, you can find me on the golf course, between the pipes as your average beer league goaltender. Although sports take up most of my life, I also love spending time with my two dogs, streaming usually a 90's Simpson's or attempting to read more books.
