David Steckel Now Property Of The Toronto Maple Leafs

via Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,

The Devils traded center David Steckel to Toronto for a fourth-round draft choice today.

In 18 games with the Devils last season, the 25-year-old Wisconsin native had one goal. Steckel was traded to the Devils from the Capitals this past February.

“What has transpired in training camp with young players like Adam Henrique, we want to give the proper (ice) time to them,” Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said. “Brad Mills also had an excellent camp.

“We’re going to look into what we can do with Petr Sykora. He could be a center and Henrique could be a center.”

Moves like this make sense for Toronto and no sense whatsoever for the Devils.
