COLUMBUS, Ohio (CP) - John Ferguson has acquired a goalie on draft day for the second year in a row.
One year after trading for Andrew Raycroft, the Toronto Maple Leafs GM has made another splash, reeling in Vesa Toskala from the San Jose Sharks for a package including Toronto's first-round pick this year.
Toskala was the most attractive goalie available on the trade market this off-season.
Forward Mark Bell also comes to Toronto in the deal.
The Sharks also receive a second-round pick in this year's draft and a 2009 fourth-round pick.
Toronto's pick was 13th overall.
