Toronto Maple Leafs Re-Acquire Matt Frattin


In what has been a completely dead opening hour and a half of free agency for the Toronto Maple Leafs, they finally made a move. However, it wasn’t a signing, it was a trade.

The Leafs sent Jerry D’Amigo and a conditional seventh-round pick to the Columbus Blue Jackets for right-winger Matt Frattin.

If you’ll remember, Frattin was part of the package that the Maple Leafs sent the Los Angeles Kings in return for Jonathan Bernier. Frattin only played 40 games for Los Angeles, scoring two goals and adding four assists for six points, before being traded to the Blue Jackets in the Marian Gaborik trade. He tallied one assist in only four games in Columbus.

D’Amigo was to be one of the Toronto Marlies looking to graduate to the Leafs for next season. Now he’ll look to compete for a spot on a young Blue Jackets team.

Frattin will probably step back into a third-line spot with the Maple Leafs after negotiations with Leo Komarov fell apart. He was a pretty good player in his previous run with them so let’s see if he can stick around longer this time around.

Let’s hope the Leafs can make some more moves today.
