Toronto Maple Leafs acquire David Clarkson from Vegas for salary cap relief, sign Michal Neuvirth to PTO
The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Tuesday night that they acquired David Clarkson and a 2020 fourth-round pick from the Vegas Golden Knights for backup goaltender Garret Sparks.
In the Leafs’ press release, they mentioned the fourth-round pick before Clarkson and that pretty much sums up the deal.
This trade was not made to improve the Leafs on the ice per se. This was done to open up cap space to bring Mitch Marner back.
