The deal Tuesday keeps Holzer under contract with the NHL club through the 2014-15 season. Holzer will make $1.575 million total -- $725,000 in 2013-14 and $850,000 in 2014-15 -- a source told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun.

The 25-year-old Holzer has appeared in 16 games with Toronto this season. He has two goals, 19 penalty minutes and is tied for third on the team in blocked shots.
