Leafs Trade Lombardi To Phoenix

from TSN,

The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded forward Matthew Lombardi to the Phoenix Coyotes for a conditional draft pick.

According to TSN Insider Darren Dreger, Toronto receives a fourth-round draft pick that would turn into a third-rounder should Lombardi re-sign in Phoenix after this season. The Leafs will retain the $500,000 signing bonus owed to Lombardi as well as a portion of his remaining salary in the deal.

Lombardi scored eight goals and added 10 assists in 62 games with the Maple Leafs last season.

Hooray for getting more than just a bag of pucks for Lombardi!

The Preds are still getting over being ‘Lebda’d’ in the deal that brought Lombardi to Toronto in the first place and the deal keeps getting better.

Now to pull a deal to move Connolly along…
