Maple Leafs sign Kapanen, Johnsson to extensions

The Toronto Maple Leafs signed restricted free agents Andreas Johnsson and Kasperi Kapanen to contract extensions on Friday.

As shown by PuckPedia, Kapanen's contract is heavy in signing bonuses.

Johnsson signed a four-year deal carrying an average annual value of $3.4 million, while Kapanen signed a three-year deal which carries a $3.2 million cap hit per season.

Both players were key contributors to the Maple Leafs' offense during their first full seasons in 2018-19, as Kapanen finished the campaign with 44 points in 78 games and Johnsson notched 43 in 73. He had two points (one goal, one assist) in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Tata plans UK’s first industrial-scale carbon capture plant
The UK has recently laid out ambitious plans to be carbon neutral by 2050 which place it among the world leaders. Following a review in January 2019 the amount of funding being made available was increased to £24 million.

He was acquired by Toronto on July 1, 2015, in a trade that sent forward Phil Kessel to Pittsburgh.

Johnsson recorded a career-high 43 points (20 goals, 23 assists) last season, his first full year in the National Hockey League. The Leafs can still place Nathan Horton on long-term injury reserve, allowing them to exceed that number by $5.3 million.

The speculation is that Marner has been talking to teams since the window to interview restricted free agents opened on Wednesday. In 133 career National Hockey League regular season games, he has recorded 54 points (28 goals, 26 assists).
