The Athletic Pierre LeBrun claims Anaheim did include some conversations with Maple Leafsall round supervisor Kyle Dubas in excess of Kapanen:In accordance toward resources, the Leafs spoke in the direction of the likes of Clean Jersey, Nashville, Anaheim, Minnesota, Chicago and Carolina relating to Kapanen. The Ducks unquestionably weren moving towards offer absent the 6th in general pick out and I consider that what the Leafs would consist of questioned for.Kapanen completed the 2019-20 period with 13 targets and 23 helps. The 24-calendar year-outdated experienced a Corsi For of 52%, yet though Toronto regulated the enjoy far more generally than not with Kapanen upon the ice, his -4.0 required aims +/- leaves everything towards be most popular.There is no question the 6th-general choose was far too a lot for Kapanen, who appears to be like such as his ceiling inside the NHL is as a 3rd-liner.

The Ducks may possibly incorporate delivered the 6th choose towards the Leafs in just replace for Kapanen at No. 13.
