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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
