According to TSN, the Toronto Maple Leafs have dealt pending restricted free agent center John Mitchell to the New York Rangers in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick.

Mitchell, Toronto's fifth-round draft pick in 2003, was in his third NHL season. The 6-foot-1, 182-pound Mitchell had 2 goals, 3 points and a minus-7 rating in 23 games for the Leafs this season. He has 20 goals, 55 points and 76 penalty minutes in 159 career games.
Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
