Forwards Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz were sent to Toronto on Saturday as the Maple Leafs traded defenceman Jesse Blacker and draft picks to the Anaheim Ducks.
Holland, a centre, will report to the Maple Leafs and Staubitz has been assigned to the American Hockey League’s Marlies.
LeBrun: The Predators have given up a ton of goals since Pekka Rinne went down; not really a big surprise. Carter Hutton, kind of an unknown commodity, has not answered the bell so the Predators and the Anaheim Ducks, I’m told, have had discussions regarding Jonas Hiller.
I heard the Nashville Predators poked around Bryzgalov, too. But that was denied like a layup attempt over Dikembe Mutombo.
One of the rumoured goalies Edmonton checked out was Jonas Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks. A couple of GMs thought there was no way this would happen because Ducks GM Bob Murray tries hard not to trade within his own (Pacific) division. Apparently, some of the offers for Bobby Ryan were from that area. Murray wanted no part of that and Ryan was traded to Ottawa.
Which high-flying teams are in for a fall? When should the Anaheim Ducks trade a goalie? Should Ray Emery’s fight spark a rule change? All these questions and more in this week’s mailbag. And remember, if you want to send in your question or comment on anything hockey-related, send it in here, and you may find it published in a future column.
Goalie Jonas Hiller has six wins for a team that finds itself with even greater goalie depth than it had after Viktor Fasth‘s emergence last season.
Rookie Frederik Andersen, substituting for an injured Fasth, followed his shutout of Dallas in relief of Hiller on Oct. 20 with a 3-0 showing on the eight-game trip.
