The Toronto Maple Leafs have extended qualifying offers to restricted free agents Ilya Mikheyev and Travis Dermott, Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston reported on Wednesday morning

Ilya Mikheyev and Travis Dermott received qualifying offers from #leafs before 5 am today Deadline ET, as expected

A 2019-2020 rookie, Mikheyev made an instant impact with Toronto – and quickly became a fan favorite too The 25-year-old forward scored eight goals and 23 points in 39 games before suffering a severe laceration in the wrist at the end of December which sent him to the hospital and required a significant recovery time He was able to join the team when the NHL returned to play, but did not get on the scoresheet As Johnston noted, negotiations between the Leafs chiefs and Mikheyev’s camp will continue after the draft

Dermott, 23, continued his 2018-19 campaign with another strong season in 2019-20, becoming a mainstay of the Leafs’ blue line who suffered injuries during the home stretch That blue line will see a lot of changes this offseason, with two unrestricted free agents to Cody This and Tyson Barrie likely to leave and some young faces of Rasmus Sandin and Timothy Liljegren looking to break through the roster.

Mikheyev and Dermott just entered into expiring entry-level deals – Mikheyev is on a one-year pact upon arriving from Russia in May 2019 as an unwritten KHL free agent and Dermott is on contract three-year-old standard who saw his entry -level slips into the top two for the 2015 second round pick

The Maple Leafs have four calls for applications in total, with forwards Evan Rodrigues and Frederik Gauthier also in need of new offers Johnston reported Tuesday night that Rodrigues will not be receiving an offer from the club

No surprise, but Kyle Dubas says the #leafs won’t make a qualifying offer to Evan Rodrigues before tomorrow’s deadline

Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. ET is the deadline for submitted offers. If a player does not qualify then he will become an unrestricted free agent
