Agent Dan Milstein is hopeful that the Maple Leafs will be able to re-sign Ilya Mikheyev.
The COVID-19 pandemic could have an impact on the NHL salary cap for next season. The Leafs offered a new deal to Mikheyev less than a week after his wrist was cut by a skate on Dec. 27 against New Jersey. "The Leafs lived up to their promise and we’ve talked a bit since," Milstein said. "If not for the work stoppage, he could’ve played after March 19. He’s very interested in re-signing there." The 25-year-old forward has eight goals and 23 points in 39 appearances this season. Mikheyev becomes a restricted free agent, with arbitration rights, following the 2019-20 season.
