Matthews scored twice and added an assist in his return to the lineup Wednesday in a 5-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks after missing 14 games with a shoulder injury, while Nylander has been at home in Sweden waiting on a new contract. "Everybody has a role and I'm happy to do my part and I know what my role is, and go out there and do it every night and try to do it every night to the best of my ability to help the team win".

The 22-year-old Nylander, who missed the first 26 games of the Leafs' season, would have had to sit out the entire campaign if he and the National Hockey League team were unable to agree on a deal by Saturday. "Hopefully it does get resolved soon".

The details of the contract are as follows: Nylander will receive $41.77M over 6 years, an average annual value of $6.96M.

Leafs coach Mike Babcock indicated after his club's optional morning skate that Nylander won't necessarily need to practise before getting in a game.

The months-long stand-off between Nylander's camp and Maple Leafs management came to a dramatic conclusion, as TSN's Darren Dreger reported the signing at 4:57 p.m. EST - three minutes before the restricted free agent signing deadline.

Fans and the media aren't the only ones ready for this whole Nylander contract thing to be resolved.

"I will tell you again, this is what I think, and it's just what I think", Babcock said after practice at the MasterCard Centre.

"We're all really excited about it", said Marner, who had two assists in the win.

"We're not just three, four guys unsafe", Tavares said of the Leafs' depth.

"High skill, I think he can control the play", Leafs forward Patrick Marleau said. Nylander has tallied 61 points in each of the last two seasons, posting two straight 20-plus goal campaigns.

The son of former NHLer Michael Nylander was the first of Toronto's young star forwards - Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner are the others - to hit restricted free agency. He has also had four playoff points in each of those two seasons.

"When he does get back here it's going make us even deadlier".

Nylander was selected by Toronto No. 8 in the 2014 NHL Draft.
