Maple Leafs pick up center Travis Green off waivers @NHL

TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Maple Leafs claimed center Travis Green off waivers from the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

Green had one goal and one assist in seven games for Anaheim this season.

It's Green's second stint in Toronto. He had 23 goals and 35 assists with the Leafs from 2000-02. He had 10 goals and 12 assists in 82 games with Boston last season.

Green has 455 career points in 946 regular-season games with Anaheim, Boston, Toronto, Phoenix and the New York Islanders.

The Leafs needed a forward because Mike Peca (broken leg), Darcy Tucker (foot), Kyle Wellwood (groin), Alexei Ponikarovsky (shoulder) and Nik Antropov (sprained ankle) are sidelined.

The Leafs also announced Wednesday that defenseman Ian White will be out three to four weeks after sustaining a mild shoulder separation in the second period of Toronto's 4-1 loss Tuesday night to the Carolina Hurricanes.
