Ryan Hollweg Traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs

Derek HarmsworthSenior Writer IJune 1, 2016

As first reported by a few New York Rangers' writers, the Toronto Maple Leafs have traded a fifth round choice in next year's draft to the New York Rangers in exchange for tough guy Ryan Hollweg.

The draft pick is from Pittsburgh and was originally acquired by Toronto in the trade for Hal Gill.

Hollweg has one season left on a deal that sees him paid $525,000 this season.  His cap hit will be $512,000.  Following this season, he will become a RFA.

It isn't a bad trade for Toronto.  Hardly newsworthy, but at the very least they have an enforcer who will likely play bare minimum minutes a night (if at all.)

Cliff Fletcher has now assured the Maple Leafs' fans their team will be tougher to play against come October, well they be better. Only time will tell.
