The Toronto Maple Leafs announced on Thursday night the hockey club has acquired forward Jamal Mayers from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for the 70th overall pick in this year’s entry draft. The Maple Leafs originally acquired the third round draft pick from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Chad Kilger on February 26, 2008.

Mayers, a Toronto native, skated in 80 games for St. Louis this season, collecting 27 points on 12 goals and 15 assists, along with 91 penalty minutes. He registered career highs in assists and shots on goal (153) in 2007-08.

Mayers has appeared in 80 games for the Blues in each of the past two seasons and three of the past four campaigns.
The 6’ 1, 214 pound winger has played in 595 career NHL games, all with St. Louis, and has recorded 71 goals, 87 assists and 158 points, along with 756 penalty minutes. The Blues originally selected Mayers in the fourth round, 89th overall in the 1993 NHL Draft.

In nine games with Team Canada, the 33-year-old tallied two goals and three assists, along with a plus-six rating.
