Stanley Cup-champion Blackhawks trade Game 6 star Bolland to Toronto for draft picks

NEWARK, N.J. - Dave Bolland's Game 6 game winner is the last goal he'll score for the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Stanley Cup champions traded Bolland to the Toronto Maple Leafs for three draft picks Sunday at the NHL draft. The Blackhawks received the 51st and 117th picks in this year's draft, and a fourth-rounder next season.

The Boston Bruins had a 2-1 lead with 2 minutes left in Game 6, and the Stanley Cup was all but packed away for a Game 7 back in Chicago.

But then Bryan Bickell tied it with 1:16 left, and Bolland scored 17 seconds later to give the Blackhawks the lead.

Bolland missed the entire first-round series vs. Minnesota with an injury.

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
