The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Nick Foligno last night, prior to today’s NHL trade deadline.

The Toronto Maple Leafs payed a high cost to acquire a 33 year-old player on an expiring contract.

The trade needed some maneuvering as Dubas’ trades usually do. It involved three teams. Toronto got Foligno and Stefan Noesen, the Columbus Blue Jackets got Toronto’s 2021 first-round and 2022 fourth-round pick, and the San Jose Sharks got Toronto’s 2021 fourth-round pick.

Nick Foligno was one of the biggest names on the market.
