Toronto Maple Leafs get striker Eric Fehr from the Pittsburgh Penguins

The Toronto Maple Leafs added another experienced player for their first playoff appearance in four years by winning Eric Fehr of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Leafs are also acquiring defender Steve Oleksy and a 4th round pick. In return, they sent defender Frank Corrado to Pittsburgh.

The name of Fehr had been submitted to the tie, but it had not been claimed. The veteran has played 52 games this season, amassing 6 goals and 5 assists for 11 points. He maintained a plus-3 differential.

Fehr has 60 experience in the playoffs, including 23 with the Penguins with whom he won the Stanley Cup in the last spring.

A few minutes after getting their hands on defender Mark Streit , the Penguins added even more depth to their defensive brigade by getting Corrado back for strikers.

Corrado is a young 23-year-old who has played two games with the Leafs this season. He was a choice of 5th round of the Canucks in 2011. He has played 69 games since the beginning of his NHL career.

As for Oleksy, he is a 31-year-old veteran who has played 73 NHL career games. In 11 games this season with the Penguins, he has amassed a pass.

The Penguins were looking for reinforcements to the blue line as Trevor Daley and Olli Maatta were injured. They had also acquired Ron Hainsey last week.
