Maple Leafs Trade Lombardi to the Coyotes

USATSI_7168992_154224518_lowresLast night, the Toronto Maple Leafs traded center Matthew Lombardi to the Phoenix Coyotes for a conditional 2014 4th round pick. The Maple Leafs will get a 3rd round pick if Lombardi re-signs the Coyotes. The Maple Leafs are also retaining salary in the deal, possibly $1.5 million.

Lombardi is in the last year of 3 year, $10.5 million deal. He has a total cap hit of $3.5 million, but it appears the Coyotes will only be responsible for $2 million of that.

This is the first trade under the new CBA were a team retains part of the salary of a traded player. This option was not available in previous CBAs.

The Coyotes had been looking to add a center, and one that has an offensive upside. There were some rumors floating around that they might have been considering Scott Gomez.

Lombardi was originally drafted in 2000 by the Edmonton Oilers, 215th overall in the 7th round. He didn’t sign with Oilers and went back in the draft. In 2002, he was drafted in the 3rd round, 90th overall.

In 508 career games, he’s scored 97 goals and added 157 assists for 254 points. His best season was back in 2009-10 when he was with the Coyotes. In 78 games he scored 19 goals with 34 assists.

Lombardi missed almost all of the 2010-11 season with a concussion, getting into only 2 games. He was traded to the Maple Leafs along with Cody Franson from the Nashville Predators for Brett Lebda and Robert Slaney in July of 2011.

“We are very pleased to bring a player like Matthew back to our team,” said Maloney. “Matthew is a very strong skater will add quickness and skill to our lineup. He is an intelligent center who will be a great addition to our team and provides us with added depth at the center position.”

For the Maple Leafs, moving Lomdardi out creates some cap space for this season, but more importantly, opens up a roster spot for possibly Nazem Kadri and/or Matt Frattin.
