Welcome back to another issue of Throwback Thursday!
That week in 1993 (February 2), the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired forwards Dave Andreychuk, Daren Puppa and a first-round winner (Kenny Jonsson) from the Buffalo Sabers.
In return, the Leafs returned Grant Fuhr and a pick for the fifth round.
Andreychuk was only in Toronto four years, but he was an all-time star for blues and whites. In his first season, he scored 25 goals and 38 points in 31 games for the Leafs.
By the time he was eliminated in a trade in 1996, Andreychuk had played 223 games for the Leafs, scoring 120 goals and 219 points. At the end of his career, the pawn’s hall played 1639 games, good enough to have him number nine on the all-time list.
Puppa, meanwhile, only appeared in eight games for the Leafs and was claimed by the Florida Panthers in the 1993 draft expansion. Jonsson also spent a short time in Toronto and played 89 games.
