According to TSN, Maloney consummated his fourth deal of the day in the final hour of trading Wednesday when he acquired wing Lee Stempniak from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for fourth- and seventh-round draft picks this June.
Stempniak had 14 goals and 30 points in 62 games for the Leafs this season. For his career, the fifth-season performer has 82 goals and 191 points in 356 games.
