The Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Zach Hyman to a four-year, $9 million contract on Wednesday.
This represents a $2.25 million cap hit for the 25-year-old forward. Refreshingly, the team disclosed the term and financial details.
Hyman played all 82 games in 2016-17, scoring 10 goals and 28 points. He averaged a solid 16:42 TOI per night this past season.
The term indicates that the Maple Leafs expect more from Hyman.
The Maple Leafs’ work is nearly done for the summer, with Connor Brown standing as the last noteworthy RFA to lock down.
