Maple Leafs sign team captain Dion Phaneuf through 2020-2021 season

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed captain Dion Phaneuf to a seven-year deal, keeping their 28-year-old defenceman around through the end of the 2020-21 season.

Phaneuf has four goals and 11 assists this season, and leads Toronto in ice time with more than 24 minutes per game.

The Leafs scheduled a news conference for Tuesday afternoon at Michigan Stadium, where they are set to play the Detroit Red Wings on Jan. 1.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
