News: The Maple Leafs have traded Broll, as well as Carter Ashton, to Tampa Bay in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2016, Mark Masters of TSN reports.
Impact: Toronto likely made the trade to create some roster flexibility. Before the trade, the Leafs were at the league maximum with 50 players under contract. Now, with the departure of Broll and Ashton, Toronto has freed up two contract openings. Broll registered zero points and was minus-8 through 21 games with AHL Toronto this season.
