One of the biggest orders of business on Toronto Maple Leafs' general manager Kyle Dubas' plate this summer is the possible Auston Matthews contract extension.
Matthews will be eligible to sign an extension on July 1st and he'll likely be looking for a long term deal.
News came out late last night that Matthews has switched agencies from CAA Hockey to Orr Hockey Group, the 20 year old's agent, Judd Moldaver, also made the switch.
Something interesting to note is that Matthews' former agency, CAA Hockey, represents Sidney Crosby and John Tavares, while his new group, Orr Hockey, represents Connor McDavid and helped him land his eight year $100million contract last year.
So far in his young career, Matthews has 132 points in 144 games which includes 74 games.
It is a little inside baseball, but: Judd Moldaver, who worked closely with Auston Matthews, moved to Orr Hockey/Wasserman, which just joined forces. Matthews is going with him. Too early to say what that will mean for negotiations with TOR...
