TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded forward Kris Versteeg to the Philadelphia Flyers for draft picks.

In return, the Leafs get first-round and third-round draft picks.

Versteeg has 35 points in 53 games this season.

He came to Toronto in the offseason after winning a Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks last spring.

Versteeg is set to earn $3.083 million next season in the final year of his contract.

The 24-year-old Alberta native has 136 points in 223 games.

The deal is the second in less than a week for the Maple Leafs. Last week, Toronto traded Francois Beauchemin to the Anaheim Ducks for forward Joffrey Lupul.
