Gustavsson Reward With Two More Years

The Toronto Maple Leafs were definitely happy with the work that Jonas Gustavsson gave them in the 2010 season, so they managed to sign the 25-year old Swedish netminder to a new 2-year deal on Thursday, which is worth $2.7 million over the duration of the contract. In July 2009, Gustavsson only signed a 1-year deal when he came over from Sweden as a free agent, likely with the understanding that he would get a new contract provided he gets a good season under his belt.

Gustavsson finished the year with a 16-15-9 record in 42 appearances, registering one shutout and picking up two assists. That all combined for 36 pool points in 2010, ranking him 232nd in pool scoring, 33rd among all goalies.

With J-S Giguere still being under contract with the Leafs for another season, I would imagine that Gustavsson will split time again in 2011, but more of that will be tackled in the Pool Outlook for the Maple Leafs, which will appear on the blog in the next couple weeks.
