Hyman added an empty-net goal in the final minute to seal Toronto's fourth straight victory and Minnesota's third loss in a row.

Nylander's offensive production in his first three seasons was almost identical to Draisaitl's but the two players have different roles on their respective teams and one could argue Draisaitl is a more versatile player so Leafs weren't willing to pay that amount for Nylander. "Hopefully he gets us on a run here, gets in a couple practices". It has an average annual value of $6.9 million. Coach Mike Babcock might have beaten him to it.

There is a chance the Leafs negotiate a trade with another team, but with the deadline Saturday it looks more likely the Leafs sign Nylander.

"If he's here after December 1st, we will be very lucky, very happy and move on with him". "It's exciting. I can't wait to have him back".

But Kasperi Kapanen, one of Nylander's good friends, occupied the right side on that unit for most of the early part of the schedule until Matthews suffered that shoulder injury on October 27.

Doubts on the rise about the US-China ceasefire
As reported by Reuters, fresh concerns are on the rise surrounding the temporary US-China truce that was struck over the weekend. China imposed a retaliatory 25 percent tariff on imports of cars from the US over the summer in response to Trump's own tariffs.


The son of former NHLer Michael Nylander was the first of Toronto's young star forwards - Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner are the others - to hit restricted free agency.

"I think other GMs in the league can verify it: We prefaced everything with our ambition is to sign this player long term, and that's what we're working toward".

"Kyle (Dubas) and (assistant GM Brandon Pridham) and the guys did a real good job in getting that done", Babcock said after a 5-3 win over the Wild.

"We want him back, for sure", defenceman Morgan Rielly said.

It was initially reported that Nylander's camp was seeking a long-term, big-money deal (possibly around eight years worth around $8 million annually) and while Toronto also preferred a long-term deal, the team wasn't comfortable going as high on the yearly payout. Gaudreau went from scoring 30 goals and 78 points in 79 games in 2015-16 to just 18 goals and 61 points in 72 games in the season following his brief holdout. Nylander has added two goals and six assists in 13 playoff outings.
