Toronto and Colorado make minor trade

James Tubb   ·   24 février 2020
The Toronto Maple Leafs and Colorado Avalanche have made a minor trade 3.5 hours before the NHL trade deadline. The Avalanche have fulfilled their promise of bringing in a new goalie by the deadline in acquiring goaltender Michael Hutchinson from the Leafs. In exchange, the Avalanche are sending former Maple Leaf Calle Rosen back to Toronto.

Through 15 games with the Maple Leafs, the 29-year-old net minder had a 3.66 GAA and a .886 save percentage. He was often times the whipping boy for Maple Leafs fans that neglected the lack luster defence in front of Hutchinson.

The Maple Leafs will get Calle Rosen back after dealing him to Colorado in the Nazem Kadri deal this past offseason. the 26-year-old Swede has two assists in eight games with the Avalanche this season, with three goals and 15 points through 35 games with the AHL's Colorado Eagles.

Hutchinson carries a $700,000 cap hit through this season, becoming an UFA this off-season. The Avalanche bolster a goaltending position that aside from injuries to star players, has truly been their weakness this season. The Maple Leafs get an extra year of Rosen at $750,000 as his contract runs until 2020-21. He will help to add depth to a Leafs defence that has looked weak this season, especially with the injury to Morgan Reilly. Rosen's addition could also strengthen the idea that soon-to-be UFA Tyson Barrie is on the move.
