Lou Lamoriello was up late on Tuesday night and was able to find a new home for goaltender Jhonas Enroth. After claiming goaltender Curtis McElhinney off of waivers from the Columbus Blue Jackets in the afternoon, the Leafs traded Enroth to the Anaheim Ducks overnight for a seventh-round draft pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
This is the third straight trade with the Ducks involving a goaltender as they made two separate deals for Frederik Andersen and then Jonathan Bernier during the offseason.
Enroth will head to the San Deigo Gulls of the American Hockey League as the Ducks are pretty much set with John Gibson and Bernier in goal. Former Montreal Canadiens net minder Dustin Tokarski has been the starter for San Diego, but he has apparently suffered and injury.
What do you think of this trade?
Enroth trade is about goaltending depth right now as Gulls main man Dustin Tokarski apparently suffered an injury down there.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) January 11, 2017
