TORONTO – The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired defenceman Conor Timmins from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for forward Curtis Douglas.
The 24-year-old Timmins has three assists through six games with the Tucson Roadrunners this season. He has also skated in two games with Arizona.
The Maple Leafs are in need of defensive depth after losing their top three rearguards to injury. Jake Muzzin (neck) and Morgan Rielly (knee) are on long-term injured reserve, while T.J. Brodie is out with an injured oblique.
