Stempniak to Phoenix
Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney isn't through yet.

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.
Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
