Maple Leafs & Canucks Make Trade for Schenn

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Luke Schenn from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for a 2023 3rd-round pick. The Maple Leafs are loading up ahead of the March. 3, NHL trade deadline. They made three moves in an hour each other. 

The Maple Leafs GM Kyle Dubas has made some significant moves to help improve his team. He has made deals that have left Leafs Nation excited for the playoffs, as it feels like this year the Leafs have a chance. Adding Ryan O'Reilly, Noel Acciari, Jake McCabe, Sam Lafferty, Erik Gustafsson, and now Luke Schenn, with only removing two players from the active roster is mind-blowing.

Schenn is not a stranger to the Maple Leafs' organization, he was drafted by the team in the first round of the 2008 NHL draft, and it just didn't work at the time. He was eventually moved for James Van Riemsdyk and later found himself on the brink of being out of the league. Today, he comes back to the Leafs, as a two-time Stanley Cup winner. He will provide the club exactly what they need, to help them find success in the postseason. 

There is still some belief that the Maple Leafs could be making more moves, with only three days to the deadline, things seem to be heating up drastically. Toronto has a few more decisions to make ahead of the trade deadline, and one of them can come as early as March 1, when Matt Murray is eligible to be taken off of LTIR.
