Maple Leafs sign Liljegren to 2-year, $2.8M extension
Liljegren was set to be a restricted free agent without arbitration rights. He'll still be an RFA following the duration of his new contract.
The 23-year-old Swede is coming off a stellar rookie campaign, tallying 23 points in 61 games while averaging 16:24 of ice time per contest. His underlying numbers were off the charts, too.
Liljegren finished 11th in Calder Trophy voting for his efforts, receiving one fourth-place vote and a trio of fifth-place votes.
The Maple Leafs selected Liljegren 17th overall in the 2017 NHL Draft.
