Jonas Gustavsson Agrees to Extension with Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs have agreed to a 2 year extension with netminder Jonas ‘the Monster’ Gustavsson. The contract hasn’t been signed yet, but the agreement will pay Gustavsson an average of $1.35 million per season.

Gustavsson played in 41 games in his rookie season, posting a 16-14-9 record, with a 2.82 GAA and .904 SV%.

Gustavsson had a bit of an up and down season, but his play improved when JS Giguere around trade deadline time. The $1.35 million cap hit is a good number for the Leafs, and is lower then originally rumored. The Leafs goalie tandem of Giguere and Gustavsson will earn $8.35 million next season with a total cap number of $7.35 million.
