We have a trade to announce !!
Early Monday morning, the Leafs PR machine announced another trade, this time it was Roman Polak (we will miss you) and Nick Spaling going to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Raffi Torres and two second round picks (2017 and 2018).
TSN had discussed Polak being rumored to San Jose last week and with the scouting trip by Kyle Dubas last week in California, many people figure this would be an excellent trading partner.
As an aside, Raffi Torres will be assigned to San Jose’s AHL Affiliate for the foreseeable future.
More to come….
