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

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
