The Toronto Maple leafs acquired hard-hitting forward Brad May from the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday for a conditional 2010 sixth-round draft pick.
The deal was former Ducks GM Brain Burke's first since becoming Toronto's president and general manager in late November.
"Brad will provide character, toughness, and he is a proven winner," Burke said in a statement. "We look forward to the veteran leadership that he will give our team."
The 37-year-old May was a member of Anaheim's 2007 Stanley Cup-winning squad. May played in 20 games this season with the Ducks, registering five assists and 28 penalty minutes.
