The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired defenseman Kevin Marshall from the Washington Capitals for forward Nicolas Deschamps.
Marshall played in 52 games with the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears this season. He had a goal and four assists with 77 penalty minutes.
The 24-year-old Marshall was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the second round in 2007. Marshall played in 10 games with the Flyers in 2011-12, totaling eight penalty minutes. Marshall will be assigned to the AHL's Toronto Marlies.
Deschamps had seven goals, nine assists and 26 penalty minutes in 50 games with the Marlies this season. The 23-year-old left-wing was drafted by Anaheim in the second round in 2008.

A few people didn’t like that I suggested that Jay McClement was a bad player in yesterday’s Mikhail Grabovski post so I thought I would provide a visual representation of McClement’s mediocrity in the form of 5v5 Zone Start adjusted CF% WOWY charts for each of the past 6 seasons (this season included).

With an 11-14-1 record, suffice it to say things haven’t gone as planned for the Washington Capitals. Currently seven points out of a playoff spot with just 22 games remaining on their schedule, the situation is getting dire in the District of Columbia.
But what is it, exactly, that’s wrong down in D.C. Is it the subpar play of supposed superstar Alex Ovechkin, or is it that...
The Ducks have acquired forward David Steckel from the Toronto Maple Leafs for minor leaguer Ryan Lasch and a seventh-round draft pick in 2014.
In Steckel, the Ducks acquired a player that teams with championship dreams often try to land approaching the NHL trading deadline. Steckel is a face-off specialist. In short, the acquisition cost was comparatively low to add a piece to...
When I heard that the Toronto Maple Leafs lost a thriller to Pittsburgh in a shoot out, I was quite pleased that they got at least one point. After all, their next opponent would be the Winnipeg Jets. A team that has been struggling lately.
I thought for sure that Leafs would get an easy two points off the Jets. Wrong.
At a time where I didn’t want Winnipeg’s goalie, Ondrej...
Tennis player Maria Kirilenko and hockey star Alex Ovechkin are talking wedding plans between their busy schedules, although the Russian couple hasn't set a date.

The loss of the ever-reliable Brooks Laich to injury so far this season is reflecting in the team's inconsistent play.
The Boston Bruins may be eager to help keep the Washington Capitals out of the playoffs given what happened the last time the teams met in Massachusetts.
Another overtime loss to the Capitals is even fresher in their minds, and they'll be out to avenge that defeat Saturday.
Joel Ward stunned the Boston crowd with an overtime goal in Game 7 of a first-round playoff series last...

The last Pens/Leafs game from a few days ago was an entertaining contest, except for the Malkin injury of course. The Pens needed a shootout to triumph over the Leafs last time. What will happen tonight with the Pens looking to win seven...
After dominating the slumping Washington Capitals in the opener of this home-and-home set, the Carolina Hurricanes have a chance to make another big statement Thursday night.
The first-place Hurricanes try to hand the visiting Capitals a season-worst fourth consecutive regulation loss as these Southeast Division rivals square off again.
