Maple Leafs Commentary: Trading Jake Muzzin, Why? and How?

On January 28, 2019, Kyle Dubas acquired defenseman Jake Muzzin from the Los Angeles Kings in return for the Maple Leafs’ first-round pick in the 2019 entry draft, forward Carl Grundstrom, and the rights to prospect Sean Durzi. Adding Muzzin Was a Good Move for the Maple Leafs. Adding...

2 Potential Trade Destinations for Maple Leafs’ Jake Muzzin

Earlier this offseason, I mentioned a few Toronto Maple Leafs who could be traded in the coming weeks, and general manager (GM) Kyle Dubas will need to be creative to upgrade his hockey club for next season. Defenseman Jake Muzzin was someone I showcased for a couple of reasons. While the Maple Leafs’ brass loves Muzzin and was impressed with his showing in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he’s a shut-down defenseman making $5.6 million. With a log jam of left-side defensemen, the need for more financial flexibility to land a starting goaltender and looking for more depth up front, the 33-year-old blueliner became a prime trade candidate.

It makes sense to move on from Jake Muzzin, but should the Maple Leafs do it?

$5.625 million — that’s the price the Maple Leafs will need to pay to keep Jake Muzzin around for the next two seasons. Since Toronto was ousted out of the first round by the Lightning, there’s been a lot to break down. The feeling is usually different at this time of year — a lot of fans broken from yet another series loss. Not this season, though.

Maple Leafs' Jake Muzzin: Scores late in loss

Muzzin scored a goal and added two hits in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Lightning in Game 4. Muzzin beat Andrei Vasilevskiy from the point at 15:41 of the third period. While not a particularly high-scoring blueliner, Muzzin's already picked up two goals, one assist and a plus-6 rating through four playoff contests. He's added 18 hits and eight blocked shots, which is less surprising given his physical style of play.

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Michael Bunting has played his last game in the regular season as the team tries to preserve the forward’s health ahead of the 2022 NHL Playoffs.

Maple Leafs' Jake Muzzin: Back Tuesday

Muzzin (undisclosed) will suit up versus Detroit on Tuesday, David Alter of The Hockey News reports. Muzzin has been limited to just 45 games this year due to various injuries and will be hard-pressed to get over the 20-point threshold with just two contests remaining. Since joining the Leafs from the Kings during the 2018-19 campaign, Muzzin has been all but removed from a power-play role and figures to be limited to mid-range fantasy value moving forward.

Maple Leafs' Jake Muzzin: Ruled out against Lightning

Muzzin (undisclosed) will remain on the shelf heading into Thursday's clash with Tampa Bay, David Alter of The Hockey News reports. Muzzin is traveling with the Leafs for their three-game road trip, so he could be back in action sooner rather than later. In his last four outings, the 33-year-old defenseman has tallied one goal, one assist and 11 shots while averaging 18:42 of ice time. Once cleared to play, Muzzin figures to relegate Timothy Liljegren to a spot in the press box.

Jake Muzzin to miss Maple Leafs weekend games, Erik Kallgren starts against Senators

Jake Muzzin will not be available to the Toronto Maple Leafs when the team visits the Ottawa Senators on Saturday and at home against the New York Islanders on Sunday. ”He was feeling good and played yesterday and I would say things flared up a little bit for him,” Maple Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe said following the team’s practice on Friday. “As a result he’s going to take some time here to just settle down a little bit and see how it responds from there.”
