MONTREAL (AP) -The rival Canadiens and Maple Leafs made a rare trade Thursday, with Montreal sending forward Mikhail Grabovski to Toronto for prospect Greg Pateryn and a second-round draft pick in 2010.
Grabovski had three goals and six assists in 27 games for the Canadiens the past two seasons.
Pateryn, a fifth-round pick in last month's NHL draft by Toronto, played in the United States Hockey League last season. He led Ohio Jr. Blue Jackets defensemen with 27 points (3-24) in 60 games. Pateryn will play for the University of Michigan for the 2008-09 season.
Also, Montreal signed defenseman Alex Henry and goalie Cedrick Desjardins to minor-league deals.
