Toronto and Marner agreed to a six-year extension, the Maple Leafs announced Friday.

The deal is for $10.893 million per year.

A break down of Marner’s extension shows he will earn $700,000 in base pay over the first two years and it increases to $750,000 over the last four.

Marner confirmed the deal on Twitter.

“I’m exactly where I want to be, in front of the greatest hockey fans in the world, proudly continuing the tradition with the @MapleLeafs,” Marner wrote. “See you soon.”

The Maple Leafs have been in conversations with Marner throughout Friday and over the last several weeks.
