Toronto Maple Leafs love what they saw from veteran quarterback Mark Giordano after acquiring him from Seattle at the NHL trade deadline, and on Sunday awarded him a two-year contract extension.

As part of the deal, he will reportedly be paid a salary cap of $800,000 per season.

Giordano is well into his 30s and is no longer the player he was at his peak and his attacking game has definitely declined, but he is still good defensively and in possession.

Once the salary cap is reached, it should be a steal for the Maple Leafs, even if he is no longer an elite scorer as a defensive end.

Their defensive play has been underestimated in 2021-22 and Giordano is definitely helping their blue line. It’s also a very low risk deal for Toronto given how low the wage cap is. At least in 2022/23, he should give them a strong defense.
