According to Darren Dreger of TSN, the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to bolster their forward group before the NHL Trade Deadline this season. He notes that a couple of weeks ago, they weren’t certain that’s what they would do, but now, they are looking to add a bit of depth, especially considering their recent string of wins.
The Leafs are coming off of two big victories against an offensive group in the Edmonton Oilers. Toronto played some excellent shutdown defense in both games, keeping Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl (along with everyone else) off the scoreboard. The Leafs are separating themselves from the pack in the NHL standings but, the Leafs could use a bit of help in the middle of their lineup.
