Toffoli is in the last year of his contract with the Devils. The team wanted to re-sign him but they encountered struggles during the process of discussing a contract extension. He wanted a longer-term deal and they didn’t want to go past the three-year mark.

Toffoli is a volume shooter and a scorer. This will be a significant upgrade for the Jets and his addition rounds out their roster and gives them another threat to score. A seasoned top-six winger, he thrives on unleashing shots and employs a sharp hockey IQ to navigate to high-scoring zones. While not the swiftest skater, he remains effective during offensive rushes. However, certain facets of his game appear contingent on the context in which he plays.
