TSN's Bob McKenzie has been reporting that an Auston Matthews contract extension is coming in the next couple of hours/days.

There's been plenty of debate on if it will be the full eight year extension or a shorter contract letting Matthews hit free agency in a couple of years. 

According to Bob McKenzie it's been figured out and the contract is all but done. 

McKenzie reports Matthews' contract extension when announced will be for 5 years and an AAV of $11.5million. 

This keeps Matthews under McDavid's $12.5million and gives Kyle Dubas a bit more wiggle room when it comes to Mitch Marner.
