Hawks deal Dave Bolland to Toronto Maple Leafs

Less than a week removed from scoring the Stanley Cup clinching goal in Game 6, Dave Bolland has been traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for picks No. 51 and No. 117 this year, and a fourth round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Bolland, 27, a Toronto native was selected by the Hawks in the second round (32nd overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He played two seasons with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League after being drafted before making his NHL debut on October 25, 2006 with the Hawks against the Vancouver Canucks.

The next season Bolland started in Rockford at the AHL level before playing six straight seasons with the Hawks including being a member of both the 2010 and 2013 Stanley Cup winning teams.
