Leafs Acquire Caputi, Skoula For Ponikarovsky
The Maple Leafs have traded forward Alexei Poniarkovsky to the Pittsburgh Penguins for forward Luca Caputi and defenceman Martin Skoula.

Caputi, 21, was the Penguins' fourth-round pick (No. 111) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. A pure shooter, he had 51 goals and 111 points for the 2007-08 OHL Niagara Ice Dogs. He joined AHL Wilkes-Barre for the 2008 Calder Cup Playoffs and helped them to the final with four goals and four assists in 19 playoff games. The Penguins were defeated in six games by the Chicago Wolves.

Caputi is in his second full season with Wilkes-Barre and has 23 goals and 47 points in 54 games, second on the Baby Pens. He also had a goal and an assist with Pittsburgh in a four-game callup after getting a goal in five games with the Pens last season. Caputi, a Toronto native, is 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds.

Skoula, 30, who signed with Pittsburgh just before the start of the season, is 3-5-8 in 33 games
