Friedman: Leafs Considering Stars' Defenseman Jamie Oleksiak.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are pretty much guaranteed to do something at the trade deadline. Recently general manager Kyle Dubas admitted that if Alex Galchenyuk can catch a wave and start to produce, it would lessen the need for a top six forward and Dubas could instead focus on strengthening the blueline. With question marks surrounding Frederik Andersen's future and health, giving Jack Campbell some insulation considering he's not 100% healthy would definitely be a plus. According to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman they have a target. Friedman reports that the Leafs are considering 6'7" 255lb Dallas Stars' defenseman Jamie Oleksiak. The Toronto native would be a big body presence and add some needed depth on the blueline. The 28 year old is in the final year of his contract that carries a $2.137million cap hit on the season and has registered 8 points in 37 games so far this season while eating around 20 minutes a game.
