The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that they have acquired 29 year old Jake Muzzin in exchange for Prospect Carl Grundstrom & Sean Durzi (rights), along with a 1st round selection in 2019.

Muzzin brings size and options for Mike Babcock. The defence pairing should now look like this going forward.

Morgan Rielly – Jake Muzzin
Jake Gardiner – Nikita Zaitsev
Travis Dermott – Ron Hainsey

On top of adding a defencemen with experience and 2 Stanley Cups, Muzzin brings another year on his contract meaning this is not a rental deal. But a Hockey deal. The same thing that GM Kyle Dubas said he was only going to do.
