Maple Leafs trade Caputi to Ducks for Deschamps

TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded Luca Caputi to the Anaheim Ducks for forward Nicolas Deschamps.

The swap of minor league players came Tuesday.

The 21-year-old Deschamps had five goals in 35 games for Syracuse of the American Hockey League. Caputi had two goals for the AHL team in Toronto.

The Leafs also recalled defenseman Korbinian Holzer from their AHL team and assigned forward Philippe Dupuis to the club.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
