Auston Matthews recently spoke with the media, sharing updates on his new four-year contract extension. He also shed light on William Nylander's situation, offering positive insights for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

During the media session, Auston Matthews openly discussed his contract negotiations and took a moment to talk about William Nylander. He sounded upbeat about the Leafs' future.

"His position is his own situation. He knows we all want him here ... I hope he'll be a Maple Leafs for a long time."

While Matthews is sorted with his contract, he's keeping an eye on Nylander's ongoing discussions. He's optimistic that Nylander will continue contributing to the Leafs' success.

Insight from Treliving

While Matthews shared his thoughts, Maple Leafs' GM Brad Treliving also chimed in.

Treliving shared the following:

"William's a terrific player. You want to keep your stars. We have time."

Like Matthews, Marner, and Tavares, Nylander has proven himself as a star player. His impressive 87-point performance last year speaks volumes. Nylander will look to build off of it.

Regardless of if Nylander signs with the Leafs or not, he will certainly get paid on his next contract.
