Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas says he will explore every opportunity available to improve his team ahead of the April 12 NHL trade deadline.
And because of the 14-day quarantine, any player acquired from a U.S.-based franchise would have to observe before joining Toronto’s roster due to COVID-19 restrictions, the sooner the better.
Dubas spoke with reporters on a video conference call for nearly 40 minutes Tuesday with the Leafs just past the midway point of league’s pandemic-shortened season.
Dubas said trade conversations up to now have largely revolved around adding a forward prior to the April 12 deadline.
Asked if he would be willing to part with one of Toronto’s top prospects to make that happen, he simply responded: “Yes.”
