The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired forward Kyle Clifford from the St. Louis Blues, DailyFaceoff’s Frank Seravalli reported on Tuesday.
Clifford, 30, joins the Leafs for his second stint after spending 16 games with the club in 2019-20 where he scored one goal and three points. The Ayr, Ont. Native is in the second year of a $ 1 million deal he signed with the Blues.
This season, Clifford has only appeared in two games with St. Louis where he recorded one assist and five shots on goal.
St. Louis gave up the 728-game NHL veteran on Monday, and just over two hours after his release he was transferred to Toronto. There, Seravalli reports, Clifford is expected to join the AHL Marlies.
The Blues have acquired future considerations in the deal.
