The 26-year-old has appeared in 86 career games.

The 24-year-old blue-liner appeared in 11 games for the Maple Leafs, collecting one assist.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
