World News – CA – Maple Leafs renew Ilya Mikheyev signing


The Maple Leafs dodged salary arbitration with Ilya Mikheyev as the team announced they had renewed the winger for two years to deal with a $ 1,645 AAV MMPierre LeBrun of TSN and The Athletic adds (Twitter link ) that the agreement pays $ 1 million in 2020-2021 and $ 2 19 million in 2021-2022

Yesterday both sides filed their arbitration submissions with Mikheyev asking for a year, $ 2 $ 7 million pact and Toronto against with a two year deal with a $ 1 million AAV at the hearing scheduled for Wednesday, the Maple Leafs were able to choose how long it would have been had they gone through the processAs is often the case with the latter, they settled near the midpoint of the two deposits which was $ 1.85 MM

The 26-year-old signed for Toronto in the last offseason and played relatively well in his NHL debut, scoring eight goals and 15 assists in 39 games while recording over 15 minutes per nightHis rookie campaign was halted due to a wrist injury that cost him 31 games, although the delayed start of the playoffs due to the pandemic saw Mikheyev return for the playoffs when they lost in five games against Columbus

Despite inexperience in North America, Mikheyev was eligible for salary arbitration due to his age, which earned him a decent raise on the $ 925K he earned during his year recruitIf his case had been heard it would have been difficult to navigate due to the lack of real comparable players in his situation, but all of this is now moot

While the deal gives Toronto a mid-six striker at a decent price, it also only buys its last two years of FRG, allowing Mikheyev to return to the free market in 2022This price was also originally supposed to be higher, as Sportsnet’s Luke Fox notes that the original deal was a bit higher, but the team called back at the last minute to ask them to take a bit less for the help stay in compliance with the cap

With this contract now over, Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas can now focus on his last restricted NHL-level free player, defenseman Travis Dermott, with recently acquired winger Joey Anderson who also needs of a new agreement, but it will probably be AHLDermott recently closed his entry-level deal and was not eligible for arbitration as Toronto likely needs to move closer to a minimum size roster and mix several entry-level players with the AHL Marlies because it has to be up to the cap, it is likely that Dermott’s contract will also be short to maintain as much short term flexibility possible

Mikheyev’s agent Dan Milstein was the first to report the contract while Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman was the first with AAV

@ DarkSide830 – Truth: 30 teams have a « theoretical » cap of $ 81 5MM The 31st team has a « magic hat », with several money trees in the GTUNE They get a good bit of precipitation there, so trees are always full of signing bonuses…

Planned 2 years, 175 from yesterday Pretty good if you ask me if he can play like he did before his injury
