Where Does Each Toronto Maple Leafs Free Agent Forward End Up?

The offseason is coming and the Toronto Maple Leafs have tons of work to do this summer with 14 free agents coming off the books.

Five of the pending Toronto Maple Leafs free agents are Tyler Bertuzzi, Max Domi, Connor Dewar, Nick Robertson and Noah Gregor. Both Domi and Bertuzzi are unrestricted free agents while Dewar, Robertson and Gregor are restricted free agents.

While I think majority of the changes for this roster will occur on the blueline, I doubt all five of these players will return to Toronto.

I am going to try to predict where each forward will end up by the start of the season.

Connor Dewar

Dewar was brought in as the only trade deadline move that addressed the forward core by Brad Treliving. Dewar was acquired from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for a 2026 fourth-round pick and prospect Dmitry Ovechinnikov. (All salary and trade information from CapFriendly.com)

Dewar played 17 games for the Leafs this past regular season scoring once and recording four assists for five points. In the playoffs, Dewar solidified himself on the fourth line, playing six games and having one assist. Dewar is more of a defensively responsible forward who plays on the penalty kill.

I expect Treliving to bring Dewar back next season on a two-year deal, with an average annual value of 900k to 1 million dollars.
