Maple Leafs acquire another defensemen
Brian Burke has acquired another defensemen via trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Leafs sent prospects Alex Berry and Stefano Giliati for Matt Lashoff. The 23 year old blueliner has appeared in 63 career NHL games with Tampa and the Boston Bruins and spent most of last season in the AHL. The former first round pick joins an already crowded Maple Leafs back end as Burke looks to make sure that this training camp will be as intense as ever since he has been with the Leafs.
