The Maple Leafs and Canucks make a small trade
“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.

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.
