Senators get Phaneuf from Maple Leafs in 9-player trade

General manager Lou Lamoriello plans to exhaust the alphabet from A to Z to improve the Toronto Maple Leafs. His latest move was trading the man who has worn the "C'' on his chest for the past six seasons.

The Maple Leafs dealt their captain and highest-paid defenseman, Dion Phaneuf, to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday in a nine-player trade that will clear plenty of salary-cap space in the years to come. The Senators sent defenseman Jared Cowen, forwards Milan Michalek, Colin Greening and Tobias Lindberg and a second-round pick in the 2017 draft to Toronto for Phaneuf, forwards Matt Frattin, Casey Bailey and Ryan Rupert, and defensive prospect Cody Donaghey.
