The Toronto Maple Leafs signed forward Joey Anderson to a three-year contract extension Friday.

The signing is a two-way contract for the first two years and carries an NHL average annual value of $750,000.

Anderson, 22, tallied four goals and two assists in 18 games with the New Jersey Devils in 2019-20.

A third-round pick by New Jersey in the 2016 draft, the Minnesota native has 13 points (eight goals, five assists) in 52 career NHL games.

Anderson won a Frozen Four title at Minnesota-Duluth in 2018 and captained the United States to a bronze medal at the 2018 World Junior Championships.
