Maple Leafs trade Spaling, Polak to Sharks for Torres, 2 picks
The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired Raffi Torres and grabbed a pair of 2nd round picks for the 2017 and 2018 Entry Drafts in a trade with the Sharks.
The deal sends Roman Polak and Nick Spaling to San Jose.
The team announced on Monday that Torres, 34, will be re-assigned to the San Jose Barracuda of the AHL.
The NHL trade deadline is February 29.
On Sunday, the Maple Leafs also shipped centre Shawn Matthias to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange prospect Colin Smith and an upcoming fourth-round pick for the draft.
That leaves the Maple Leafs with 12 picks in the upcoming draft.
