Jean-Sebastien Giguere Headed to Toronto

Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere is a Toronto Maple Leaf as well, as general manager Brian Burke continues to turn his team upside down on this Sunday morning.

Struggling goalie Vesa Toskala and forward Jason Blake are headed to Anaheim.

The 32-year-old Giguere had lost his starting job in Anaheim to youngster Jonas Hiller, who signed a new four-year contract with the Ducks yesterday. It was clear the writing was on the wall for ‘Giggy’ and to that end, today’s trade is really no shocker.

He will be reunited in Toronto with Burke, who originally signed him as GM of the Ducks. Giguere had to waive his no-trade clause for the trade to be finalized.


Seven Players Involved In Calgary-Toronto Swap

Dion Phaneuf is headed to the Toronto Maple Leafs, but he won’t be making the trek across Canada alone. Heading East with him will be forward Fredrik Sjostrom and defenseman Keith Aulie.

Aulie had been playing with the Abbotsford Heat of the AHL.

Heading West to Calgary are forward Niklas Hagman, Matt Stajan, and Jamal Mayers and defenseman Ian White. It’s safe to say the deal gives the Flames the secondary scoring depth they are so desperately in need of.

There are still reports that the Anaheim Ducks are sending Jean-Sebastien Giguere to Toronto for goaltender Vesa Toskala. Giguere is now expendable in Anaheim thanks to the Ducks signing yesterday of goalie Jonas Hiller.
