Maple Leafs sign Morgan Rielly to 8 year deal

The Leafs have locked in their top pairing defenceman Morgan Rielly for the next 8 years, and it seems that the 27-year-old defenceman will finish his career as a Leaf.

Announced Friday afternoon, the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Morgan Rielly to a 8-year deal that carries an annual average value of $7,500,000.

The deal includes a no movement clause for the first six years and a 10 team no trade clause in the final two years.

When you consider some of the contracts we have seen been given out to defenceman this off-season, that number and term seems like an absolute steal.
