Leafs Acquire Polak From Blues For Gunnarsson
PHILADELPHIA -- The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded defenceman Carl Gunnarsson to the St. Louis Blues for Roman Polak.
The Leafs also sent the 94th pick in Saturday's NHL draft to St. Louis in the deal.
Polak, a 28-year-old right-handed defenceman, fills a need Toronto had for a stay-at-home defenceman.
The Czech native has 79 points in 424 games of NHL experience.
Gunnarsson, a 2007 seventh-rounder, had spent five seasons with the Leafs.
