Joel Edmundson - Los Angeles Kings (Four-year, $3.85M Cap Hit)

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Joel Edmundson at the trade deadline for a pair of mid round picks and brought a physicality to the line-up they had lacked.

The Brandon, Manitoba native played well in Toronto as a bottom pairing defenseman and the Los Angeles Kings paid him for it.

Edmundson will head to California on a four-year deal with a cap hit of $3.85 Million.

Ilya Lyubushkin - Dallas Stars (Two-year, $3.25M Cap Hit)

Another midseason acquisition, Ilya Lyubushkin joined the Toronto Maple Leafs for the second time and cashed in playing in the spotlight.

The Russian born defenseman averaged 16:30 of ice-time in the playoffs and with Dallas losing some of their key defenseman, he signed a multi-year contract with a $3.25 Million cap hit.

Ilya Samsonov - Vegas Golden Knights (One-year, $1.8M Cap Hit)

After his first season in Toronto, it looked as thought Ilya Samsonov may break out as the future starting goalie for the franchise, however it was not the case.


Following a summary where he went to arbitration over his contract, Samsonov struggled for almost the entirety of the 2023-24 season. He'll get another shot in Vegas after signing a one-year deal worth $1.8 Million to be Aidn Hill's back-up.
