The Toronto Maple Leafs have been very busy this trade deadline and have made what seems to be their final move.
Toronto has acquired defenseman Ben Hutton from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a mid-round pick.
Ben Hutton is a big, 6’2 206lbs defenseman from Brockville, ONT. He provides a physical presence but can also move the puck and has some offensive upside while being great on the penalty kill. This season with the Anaheim Ducks he has just 5 points in 34 games. The 27 year old defenseman has a career high 25 points.
Hutton will likely play on Toronto’s bottom pairing.

Ben Hutton, acquired by TOR, is a fine bottom pairing penalty kill specialist. Predictably saw his numbers dip back down after a crazy bump last year but a serviceable player. #LeafsForever pic.twitter.com/FOTPiLvV4K
