Maple Leafs acquire D Muzzin from Kings


Maple Leafs acquire D Muzzin from Kings

The Toronto Maple Leafs made a move to improve their defense on Monday, acquiring Jake Muzzin from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Carl Grundstrom, the rights to unsigned draft choice Sean Durzi and a first-round draft pick in 2019. Entering the Monday action, the Maple Leafs were tied for 10th in the NHL in goals allowed per game, 2.86. However, Toronto has dropped four of its past six games while yielding at least three goals in five of those six games.

Muzzin, 29, a Woodstock, Ontario native, played in 50 games with the Kings this season, scoring four goals and producing 17 assists. He has 51 goals and 162 assists in 496 career games, registering 298 penalty minutes. Muzzin won the 2014 Stanley Cup with the Kings. Los Angeles has struggled this season after advancing to the Stanley Cup playoffs in seven of the past nine years, winning it all in 2011-12 and 2013-14. The

The Kings remain last in the Western Conference with 44 points, but they have looked better of late recording a point in four of their past five games. Dealing away Muzzin for prospects and a draft pick could signal the start of a rebuilding phase. Grundstrom, who is expected to be assigned to the AHL's Ontario Reign, has yet to make his NHL debut. He had 13 goals and 16 assists in 42 games for the AHL Toronto Marlies this season.

Durzi, 20, is in his fourth season in the Ontario Hockey League. He had eight goals and 20 assists in 26 games for two AHL clubs this season. -Field Level Media
