Per TSN's Darren Dreger, the Toronto Maple Leafs have reached a deal with the Boston Bruins to acquire young winger, Phil Kessel.

There is still no confirmation on the terms of the trade, but earlier reports involved two first round picks and a second rounder for Kessel.

The Maple Leafs were reported to have interest in the restricted free agent all summer. An initial trade at this year's NHL Entry Draft which included Leafs' defenseman, Thomas Kaberle, fell through.

Over the past month, trade talks heated up involving the Nashville Predators, New York Rangers and, of course, the Maple Leafs.

Kessel finished last season with a career high in goals (36) and assists (24) in 70 games for the Bruins.
