Leafs skaters Jamal Mayers and Garnet Exelby have requested to be traded out of Toronto. “I haven’t had a chance to win yet, so I’d certainly like that opportunity,” said Mayers following practice yesterday.
General manager Brian Burke is expected to be quite active as the March 3 trade deadline approaches and the team’s fate as a non-playoff participant all but decided.
At Ricoh Coliseum, former Leaf and Marlie Justin Pogge had the last laugh against his former team, backstopping the San Antonio Rampage to a 4-3 shootout victory.
