    Matthew Knies plans to focus on improving his skating.
    “It starts with my skating,” Knies said. “I can be a better skater. The NHL is super-fast. Same with shooting and stride. Shooting underneath my feet in odd areas was a huge thing that they harped on me. There are quite a few elements that I could work on.” Knies will get a chance to further his development while playing for the University of Minnesota in 2022-23. The Maple Leafs took him with the 57th overall pick in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft. Although he’s not ready to assume this role yet, he has the potential to become a top-six power forward in the NHL.

    Ian Scott has decided to end his playing career.
    Scott had been battling injuries for the last few years and ultimately decided that it was time to turn the page. He only played in one game with the ECHL’s Newfoundland Growlers in 2021-22. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.

He had 15 goals, 35 points, 154 shots and 66 hits in 78 games last season. Engvall will be eligible for unrestricted free agency after the 2022-23 season.

    Matthew Knies hopes to to be able to join the Toronto Maple Leafs at the end of the 2022-23 season.
    “Hopefully I can join them at the end of the season,” Knies said. “Once I’ve matured myself as a player, I think that’s when I can make the step and kind of give the Leafs a boost and try to make them a better team.” Knies has decided to return to the University of Minnesota for his sophomore season. He is currently at Toronto’s development camp and then he will represent the United States at the World Junior Championship in August.

  • TOR Left Wing #19
    Calle Jarnkrok has inked a four-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
    Jarnkrok generated 12 goals and 30 points in 66 games with Seattle and Calgary last season. He was also credited with 101 shots and 38 hits between the two teams. Jarnkrok should fit in nicely on the third line of the Maple Leafs and he is capable of moving up further if needed.

  • TOR Goaltender #30
    New Toronto goalies Matt Murray and Ilya Samsonov are expected to compete for starts next season.
    “That will be wide open to competition,” Maple Leafs GM Kyle Dubas said. “We’ll give them both a good run here and our hope is that both play well, as well as they can, and we will get to work with them mid September and get them rolling. That would be a great thing for us if both of them play the way we think they can.” Murray, who was acquired from Ottawa, has two years left on his deal and Samsonov signed a one-year, show-me type contract with the Leafs after being cut loose by Washington.

  • TOR Defense #18
    Jordie Benn has signed a one-year contract with Toronto worth $750,000.

  • COL Right Wing #81
    Denis Malgin has signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
    It’s a one-way deal, but Malgin’s cap hit is low enough that Toronto can easily send him to the minors if they opt to do so. He had 21 goals and 52 points in 48 games with Zurich SC in Switzerland.
