What a 24hrs for the Toronto Maple Leafs and their fans.
Yesterday we heard that the pick would likely be Alexander Kerfoot thanks to a leaked video online but that doesn't seem to be the case.
According to Frank Seravalli, the Kraken instead will be selecting the newly acquired Jared McCann.
It's a bit of a home run for the Leafs as Kerfoot was arguably one of if not the best Leafs' forward in the playoffs.
More details to come.
His stay was short-lived in Toronto. The #SeaKraken will be selecting Jared McCann from the #Leafs. The end result: Toronto traded prospect Filip Hallander and a 7th round pick to Pittsburgh to essentially protect their roster from Seattle.@DFOHockey
