Despite his short stint with the Toronto Maple Leafs since being acquired by the Minnesota Wild at the deadline, Connor Dewar has made a name for himself in the Six.

It's clear as day that there is mutual interest regarding Connor Dewar and The Maple Leafs regarding a contract extension, with the forward being a pending RFA on July 1st.
In an ideal world, the Leafs take him on for a very team friendly contract as the Blue and White have many contracts to sign including, Tyler Bertuzzi, Max Domi and Timothy Liljegren.
The following was established regarding Dewar and his next contract with the Leafs.
Dewar, though his offensive ceiling is infinitely smaller than what he's done defensively at this point in his career, has shown enough promise through a double-digit goal season in his second campaign that he's worth a slight overpayment. On defense, he's already shown that he's an elite shutdown player at both five on five and on the penalty kill. Considering that he's already surpassed Aston-Reese's career-high in points, I would assume he gets paid more than Aston-Reese's age-24 contract extension. At the same time, his offensive ceiling doesn't match that of Trenin, and he will be paid less simply by being a less physical, smaller player. With those in mind, I would anticipate that Dewar gets a two-year deal at around $1.4 million AAV, which would tie-up 1.59% of the 2024-25 salary cap. After recovering from surgery this offseason, he will be a staple in the team's bottom-six.

24-year-old forward Connor Dewar, acquired by the Toronto Maple Leafs from the Minnesota Wild, is likely to get extended with a short-term deal. His defensive prowess shines, leading in expected goals against per 60 minutes. Comparable
