GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes have acquired centre Matthew Lombardi from the Toronto Maple Leafs for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft.

Lombardi played for the Coyotes from 2008-10, scoring 19 goals with 34 assists in 78 games during the 2009-10 season. He missed most of the 2010-11 season due to a concussion and had eight goals and 10 assists in 62 games for Toronto last season.

Lombardi has 97 goals and 157 assists in 508 NHL games, including a stint with the Calgary Flames. He's also played in 40 career playoff games, with three goals and 13 assists.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
