Leafs deal Josh Leivo to Canucks in exchange for AHLer

Leafs deal Josh Leivo to Canucks in exchange for AHLer

Leipsic was placed on waivers on Sunday, available to be claimed by every team in the National Hockey League. He was drafted by the Nashville Predators in the third round of the 2012 NHL Draft but never appeared in a regular season game for the Preds. The team chose to risk losing Leipsic for nothing rather than send down Adam Gaudette, who does not require waivers, but has impressed the coaching staff.

Selected by Dallas in the fifth round (No. 131) in the 2010 NHL Draft, Klingberg has 227 points (47 goals, 180 assists) in 319 NHL games.

Gov. Scott Walker Signals Support for Lame-Duck Package
Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos delayed a planned news conference but had no comment on any potential roadblocks. The last lame-duck session in Wisconsin was in 2010 when Democrats tried unsuccessfully to enact labor agreements.

On the same morning that the Canucks lost one former Toronto Maple Leaf numbers game casualty in Brendan Leipsic, they threw a life vest for this year's model, taking Josh Leivo off Toronto's hands for the cost of Utica Comets forward Michael Carcone.

In 81 career National Hockey League games Leipsic has eight goals and 22 assists.
