The Toronto Maple Leafs traded forward Josh Leivo to the Vancouver Canucks on Monday for forward Michael Carcone.

Leivo, 25, has played in 27 games this season and tallied six points (four goals, two assists). In six seasons with Toronto, he appeared in 84 games and registered 28 points (14 goals, 14 assists).

Leivo became the odd man out among the Leafs’ forwards after William Nylander signed a six-year contract over the weekend.

Carcone, 22, has appeared in 20 games with the AHL’s Utica Comets this season, recording six goals and 11 assists for 17 points.

In a corresponding roster move, the Maple Leafs recalled defenseman Travis Dermott from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.
