Blackhawks Send Bolland to Toronto

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Bryan Bickell is sticking with Chicago. Dave Bolland is on his way to Toronto.

The Blackhawks traded Bolland to the Maple Leafs for three draft picks yesterday at the NHL Draft. Chicago received the 51st and 117th picks this year, and a fourth-rounder next season.

Bolland's departure allowed Chicago to sign Bickell to a four-year deal. Bickell was eligible for unrestricted free agency and cashed in after coming up with a big postseason despite against Boston in the Stanley Cup final with a sprained right knee.

Bolland scored the game-winning goal in Game 6 that gave the Blackhawks their second Stanley Cup in four years.
