Maple Leafs Set Secure Long-Term Agreement with Tyler Bertuzzi

SEP 1, 2023   |   BY AUSTIN SABOURIN
The Toronto Maple Leafs have been on the move during the offseason, making significant changes from hiring Brad Treliving to securing Auston Matthews' extension. Alongside these moves, the team has also strategically brought in free agents who are poised to play pivotal roles in the upcoming year. Notably, one of these fresh additions is already expressing interest in a long-term commitment.

Among the notable signings, Tyler Bertuzzi stands out as a key addition to the Leafs' roster. His addition is expected to inject a dose of grit and toughness, complementing his evident skillset. Recent information from an NHL insider confirms the mutual interest of the Leafs and Bertuzzi in fostering a long-term relationship.

According to Elliotte Friedman's remarks on SN590, he shares,

"I am of the belief that Toronto wanted to sign Tyler Bertuzzi longer and I think Bertuzzi wanted to sign longer but they didn't have the ability to do it now. What does that mean after Jan 1st?"





It's important to note that due to Bertuzzi's recent contract signing with the Toronto Maple Leafs, he's restricted from negotiating extensions until after January 1st. This explains Friedman's reference to January 1st as a potential target date.

Tyler Bertuzzi's aspiration to be a long-term Leaf is part of a broader trend. Earlier in the summer, there were reports that Max Domi also expressed his desire to stay with the team for the long haul.

If both Bertuzzi and Domi manage to make substantial impacts in the upcoming season, it's reasonable to expect talks about potential extensions. Keep an eye on these players as they could be securing their places in the Leafs' long-term plans.
