One of the many pending free agents that Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brad Treliving will have to make a decision on in short order is defenseman Timothy Liljegren, who has completed his two year, $2.8 million deal that former GM Kyle Dubas gave him in 2022. 

And according to a recently released report, it looks as though the Leafs are prepared to move on from him.

He was limited to 55 games this season after missing an extended period of time thanks to suffering a high ankle sprain following a questionable hit from Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand; he was also scratched during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. 

He's set to become an arbitration-eligible restricted free agent, and the Leafs have until June 30 at 5:00 PM EST to offer Liljegren a qualifying offer.
