Ny­lan­der signs 6-year ex­ten­sion with Maple Leafs at dead­line

Centre Daily Times (Sunday) - - Sports -

Wil­liam Ny­lan­der’s con­tract im­passe with the Toronto Maple Leafs has ended.

The re­stricted free agent signed a six-year deal Satur­day, just be­fore the 5 p.m. dead­line. The deal is worth $10.2 mil­lion this season and $6.9 mil­lion a year the rest of the sea­sons.

Ny­lan­der, the Cal­gar­y­born Swede selected eighth over­all in 2014, had to sign by the dead­line to be el­i­gi­ble to play in the NHL this season. He and the club had been at odds on the terms of a new agree­ment af­ter his en­try-level con­tract ex­pired July 1.

Se­na­tors 6, Sharks 2: Ben Harpur scored his first NHL goal, Craig Anderson stopped 36 shots and the Se­na­tors spoiled Erik Karlsson’s re­turn to Ot­tawa by beat­ing San Jose.

Jamie Benn also scored mid­way through the third for the Stars, who are 3-1-1 in their last five games. Ben Bishop made 24 saves in his first start since re­turn­ing from a lower-body in­jury that kept him side­lined for five games.
