Engvall scored a third-period goal and added two shots during Wednesday's 3-1 win over the visiting Sharks. Engvall, who scored his first goal in nine outings Wednesday, will be needed at some point to provide consistent scoring. The Maple Leafs, who have won five straight, haven't needed much from the bottom two lines this season, but the top-six can't expect to carry the club all season. The 26-year-old left winger notched his first tally during his eighth appearance. Goal No. 2 came seven outings later.
To those wanting Pierre Engvall to start living large and throwing around his 6-foot-5, 220 body with greater authority, Sheldon Keefe hears you.

The Toronto Maple Leafs most likely defeated the Buffalo Sabres last night, but I wrote the following in advance. The Toronto Maple Leafs have gotten off to a great start to the season, but one that has been obscured by overtime losses, some bad shooting luck from their best players, and a rotating cast of goalies.
Engvall produced an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Hurricanes. Engvall set up Calle Jarnkrok's game-tying goal in the second period. The assist was just the second point of the season for Engvall, who has struggled to generate offense in a bottom-six role. He had 35 points in 78 contests last year, so the early struggles suggest he's going through a bit of regression. He's added 17 shots on net, 13 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 12 appearances, but it's unlikely he goes on an extended run of scoring any time soon.
The Toronto Maple Leafs sit with a 5-4-2 record on the season as they get set for a big back-to-back on the weekend against the Boston Bruins and Carolina Hurricanes. The team has been inconsistent this season and one of the biggest reasons is because of the lack of production from the team’s bottom-six forwards.
TORONTO – Someone else needs to pop. Absolutely, the Toronto Maple Leafs will ride or die with their four most explosive offensive threats. But with a chunk of depth scoring walking out the door this summer — Ilya Mikheyev (now in Vancouver) pumped 21 goals last season; Ondrej Kase (Carolina) and Jason Spezza (retired) combined for another 26 — Kyle Dubas’s top-heavy roster will need a second wave of production.
The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that the hockey club has signed forward Pierre Engvall to a one-year contract extension. The average annual value of the contract is $2.25 million. Engvall, 26, recorded 35 points (15 goals, 20 assists) in 78 games with the Maple Leafs during the 2021-22 season...
A familiar face will be sticking around with the Toronto Maple Leafs, with the club announcing forward and current RFA Pierre Engvall has been re-signed on a one-year deal. The team did not announce the financial terms of the contract. However, The Athletic’s James Mirtle reports the contract is worth $2.25M for this season. Engvall’s extension gives him a $1M raise on the two-year, $2.5M contract that had just expired, which carried an AAV of $1.25M. The contract also means that both sides avoid arbitration, with the deadline for player-elected salary arbitration coming today and the club-elected deadline coming tomorrow. The contract leaves Engvall an UFA after this season.
The forward was a restricted free agent and received a raise of $1 million.
Engvall was in the final year of a two-year contract with a $1.25 million cap hit, so he gets a $1 million raise on his new deal. At just one year, this contract will take Engvall to UFA eligibility next season. This deal was announced just five minutes before the NHLPA announced the players who elected for salary arbitration, which many speculated Engvall would join.
Mere moments before the salary arbitration deadline, Pierre Engvall has signed an extension with the Leafs. The new contract pays him $2.25 million for the 2022-23 season, a nice pay raise given he is coming off a two-year deal that had a $1.25 million AAV. Today was the deadline for...
