lupsThe Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that they’ve signed newly appointed alternate captain Joffrey Lupul to a 5-year contract extension. The deal which is worth about $5.25 million per season will have Lupul wearing blue and white through 2018. Lupul had a highly successful season last year, landing him a spot on the All-Star team in Ottawa. Lupul suffered a separated shoulder on March 7th, which ended his 2012 season earlier than anticipated. Prior to injury, Lupul was on track to scoring career highs and averaging one point per game. The deal shows Toronto’s faith in the forward and Lupul is looking to restore Toronto’s faith in the team, posting the following via Twitter: “Thrilled to be a Maple Leaf for 5 more years. Look forward to doing everything I can to help bring a Stanley Cup to Toronto.” @JLupul
