Toronto Maple Leafs Acquire Nick Foligno

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired forward Nick Foligno from the Columbus Blue Jackets  in a three-team deal that also included the San Jose Sharks.

Columbus secured Toronto's first-round pick in the 2021 NHL draft and fourth-round selection in 2022, while San Jose gets the Leafs' fourth rounder in 2021.

The Blue Jackets will retain 50 per cent of Foligno's contract, while the Sharks earn a pick for retaining the other half of his US$5.5-million salary cap hit.

Toronto also got minor-league forward Stefan Noesen from San Jose in the deal.

Nick's dad, Mike Foligno, scored the overtime winning in game five of the Leafs / Red Wings series in 1993.
