Leafs Sign Holzer To Two-Year Extension

http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=658671

Quote:
The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Tuesday that the hockey club has signed defenceman Korbinian Holzer to a two-year contract extension through the 2014-15 season. As per club policy, financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Holzer, 25, has played 16 games for the Leafs this season scoring two goals and registering 19 minutes in penalties. He recorded his first NHL goal, which was also the game-winner, in the Leafs’ 3-2 win at Washington on February 5 and he logged a career-high 23:41 of ice-time on February 7 at Winnipeg. The 6-3, 205-pound defenceman ranks third (tie) on the team in blocked shots with 37. He has also skated in 34 games for the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies in 2012-13 collecting eight points (one goal, seven assists) and 28 penalty minutes.

Holzer, a native of Munich, Germany, has represented his country at several international tournaments including the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the 2010 and 2011 IIHF World Championships, and the 2007 IIHF World Junior Championships.

The Leafs originally selected Holzer 111th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Good stuff. Probably not a two way though...hoping for a cap hit under 1.5 million

Lackluster defensive play and bad decisions gets you contracts.

Why do we need him? He doesn't even deserve to be in the NHL.

The guy is a rookie. Of course he's going to make glaring mistakes.

No one is building him up to be a #1 defenseman. He is well suited as a 5-6 guy. Carlyle has used him wrong.

But he can be an effective defenseman in the right situations.

He's young, he's physical, he's a homegrown NHLer?

It takes time to develop to a peak. I can't believe people ***** at the fact that we re-sign one of our own better prospects. Sometimes I think people are here just to troll.

Would've been happy if it was 'Marlies signed Holzer to an extension'

He hasn't even played 20 games at the NHL level. Give him a break.

Holzer himself said there is a huge learning curve getting adjusted to the speed of the NHL game. He played well for the Marlies and will certainly improve here.

its a numbers game, committing to holzer spells the end of liles, and post-concussion i don't know if liles even knows where his jockstrap is

Good to hear..

He has been playing well and developing nicely under Carlyle, and used effectively.

Good signing. With Gardiner, Morgan and Phaneuf, we need tough, stay at home D. I like what I have seen - not afraid of anyone, willing to block shots. He's a rookie, cut the guy some slack. He's been playing big minutes and in critical situations.

I'd say this more so closes the books on Komisarek, obviously a much closer skillset.

I like Holzer. I like what he has done on the top unit. It will be great for his confidence when he slides back into a 5th or 6th dman.

He has played against the best. And really hasn't looked too far off. If we pair him with the right guy, he will look good against opposing teams secondary.

Franson - Holzer is something solid to look forward too, Fraser has looked very sturdy; but when all is said and done, the future looks like this.

I dont know why some of you are upset. I'd rather our depth dmen make peanuts as opposed to overpaying for a UFA in the summer, or having our #6 guy make 4.5m like Komisarek.

If you don't think he's been playing well (overall), then I don't know what you're watching.

A bad game against Montreal and NYI does not negate his strengths and upside.

He is a rookie playing big minutes against the oppositions best lines and has shown good defensive ability and instincts.
