The Ducks have acquired Korbinian Holzer from the Maple Leafs for Eric Brewer and a 5th round draft pick.
Holzer, 26, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He has plenty of size at 6-foot-3, 205 lbs and bring a physical brand of hockey, but provides little in the way of offence. Holzer had six assists in 34 games with the Maple Leafs.
Robidas will serve as a healthy scratch for the third time this season as the Maple Leafs seem to be limiting the work on the 37-year-old's body. Holzer has four assists and a plus-5 rating in 12 games this season.
Leafs have sent Holzer down to the AHL. Are at 22 man roster right now.
For now we will assume that Mike Komisarek will replace Holzer in the lineup. However they have an a roster spot open and no one on IR, so this could mean that Jake Gardiner will be recalled soon. Holzer had three points and a minus-12 in 22 games this season.
Brian Burke, President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced Friday that the hockey club has assigned forward Matt Frattin and defenceman Korbinian Holzer to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.
