Kaberle deal in place

TSN.ca reports that the Maple Leafs have traded defenceman Tomas Kaberle to the Boston Bruins in exchange for prospect centre Joe Colborne, the Bruins’ first round pick in 2011 and a conditional draft pick.

As of 1pm EST, the trade call still has to go through the league to confirm the deal.

EDIT 2:30pm EST. The Maple Leafs officially confirmed the trade – on the terms stated above – in a press release. The conditional draft pick is a 2012 second-round draft choice if Boston either re-signs Kaberle or advances to the Stanley Cup Final this season.

Kaberle, 32, is the second-highest scoring defenceman in team history behind Borje Salming – with 83 goals and 437 assists in 878 games.
