Forward Max Domi and the Toronto Maple Leafs agreed on a four-year, $15 million deal, the team announced Sunday.

The two sides avoided going to free agency, which begins Monday at noon ET.

Domi, 29, totaled nine goals and 38 assists in 80 regular-season games during the 2023-24 campaign, his first in Toronto after signing a one-year, $3 million contract. He added one goal and three assists in the Leafs' first-round playoff loss to the Boston Bruins.

Domi was the No. 12 overall pick by the then-Phoenix Coyotes in the 2013 draft and has also played for the Montreal Canadiens, Columbus Blue Jackets, Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks and Dallas Stars.

In nine NHL seasons, Domi has 443 points (137 goals, 306 assists) in 711 games, including the playoffs.

The Maple Leafs on Sunday also retained defenseman Timothy Liljegren with a two-year, $6 million deal.

Liljegren, 25, tallied three goals and a career-high 20 assists in 55 regular-season games with Toronto in 2023-24. He notched his only career playoff point (in 13 games) with an assist in Game 6 of the Maple Leafs' first-round series against Boston.

Liljegren has spent his entire five-year career with Toronto, which drafted him No. 17 overall in the 2017. He has 65 points (14 goals, 51 assists) in 196 career regular-season games.
