Blackhawks deal Bolland, Frolik for draft picks
Toronto Maple Leafs acquire Dave Bolland from Chicago Blackhawks.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Six days after combining on the Stanley Cup-clinching goal, the Chicago Blackhawks have traded away Dave Bolland and Michael Frolik for a collection of five draft picks, including four they are expected to use Sunday.

Bolland, who scored the Cup-clinching goal, was moved to the Toronto Maple Leafs for picks No. 51 and 117 in the draft on Sunday as well as a fourth-round pick in 2014.

Frolik, who had the primary assist on Bolland's winning goal, was dealt to the Winnipeg Jets for picks No. 74 and 134.

Bolland, 27, has one year and $3.375 million remaining on his contract. Frolik has one year and $2.33 million left on his contract.

Bolland grew up just outside of Toronto in Mimico, Ontario, and played minor hockey for the Toronto Red Wings before joining the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. He was drafted by the Blackhawks in 2004 (No. 32) and won the Stanley Cup twice while producing 168 points during 332 regular-season games for Chicago. He had 43 points in 67 career Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Frolik was originally drafted No. 10 in 2006 by the Florida Panthers. Chicago acquired Frolik on Feb. 9, 2011 and he signed a three-year extension with the Blackhawks four months later.

Frolik, who scored 21 goals each of his first two NHL seasons, became one of Chicago's top penalty-killing forwards.

More to come.
