The Maple Leafs and Canucks make a small trade

Ben Kuzma: The Toronto Maple Leafs traded forward Sam Lafferty to the Vancouver Canucks for a 2024 fifth-round pick.

“He’s kind of a heavier and grittier guy,” Tocchet said of the 6-foot-1, 195 pound Hollidaysburg, Penn. native. “A really good skater, who can score some goals and it was a chance to acquire more of a stickier guy. He’s a penalty killer, too, and he and Teddy (Blueger) killed penalties together in Pittsburgh.”

Lafferty was drafted 113th overall by the Penguins back in 2014.

Lafferty carries a $1.15 million cap hit and will be a UFA after this season.
