Toronto Maple Leafs get forwards Peter Holland, Brad Staubitz from Anaheim Ducks for Jesse Blacker, draft picks

In 230 career NHL games with San Jose, Minnesota, Montreal and Anaheim, Brad Staubitz, left, has 10 goals, 11 assists and 520 penalty minutes.
The Toronto Maple Leafs hope they have plugged a hole at centre with the acquisition of Peter Holland from Anaheim on Saturday.
The former first-round pick -- one of the Ducks top young prospects -- is expected to play on one of Toronto's top lines on Saturday night against the Buffalo Sabres.
The Leafs got Holland, a 22-year-old from Caledon, Ont., along with minor leaguer Brad Staubitz for defenceman Jesse Blacker of the Marlies and a couple of draft picks -- a third round pick in 2014, which could become a second rounder if certain conditions are met, and the return of Anaheim's 2014 seventh round pick (which the Leafs had acquired in the David Steckel trade).
Blacker played five games for the AHL’s Toronto Marlies this season collecting one goal and four penalty minutes. He was originally selected 58th overall by the Leafs in the 2009 Entry Draft.
Holland was originally Anaheim’s first choice, selected 15th overall in the 2009 entry draft. This season, the 6-2, 194-pound centre played four games for Anaheim scoring one goal and adding two penalty minutes. In 10 games with the AHL’s Norfork Admirals he registered a team leading nine points (five goals, four assists) along with 22 penalty minutes. In 29 career NHL games he has earned five goals, two assists and eight minutes in penalties.
