Nelson's Dryden Hunt traded to Toronto Maple Leafs
by The Nelson Daily Sports on Tuesday December 20 2022
The whirlwind season for Dyden Hunt continues.
The Nelson Minor Hockey grad was traded Monday from the Colorado Avalanche to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Leafs acquired the Avs winger in exchange for forward Denis Malgin, 12 hours before the NHL’s holiday roster freeze.
Hunt moves on to his third team this season, after starting the year with the New York Rangers. Hunt was claimed by the Avs on Oct. 20.
The 6’3”, 193-pound Hunt brings a bit more size to the Leafs’ lineup, a physical element as well as a left shot.
