Leafs Boone Jenner trade
The Leafs are hoping to make a deep playoff run this year and will be looking to add depth. They have interest in a Boone Jenner trade.

NHL trade rumors are starting to circulate that the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to secure a depth forward and depth defenseman before the NHL trade deadline.

One player that is making the rounds is Columbus Blue Jackets forward Boone Jenner.

Will the Toronto Maple Leafs target Boone Jenner?

NHL Analyst Mike Johnson was on TSN Radio 1050 and was asked if he see’s the Toronto Maple Leafs making any big moves at the trade deadline.

Johnson feels the Leafs will target Boone Jenner for a depth center to add to the lineup. He excels in the faceoff circle and is a great guy in the locker room.

Jenner, 29, is a big body at 6’2″ and 208lbs who has put up a solid 26 points in 40 games. He also is signed for the next three seasons with a Blue Jackets salary cap hit of $3.75 million. He would likely fill the Alex Kerfoot roll for the next three years as Kerfoot is set to become a unrestricted free agent after this season.

What are Leaf fans saying about a Boone Jenner trade?

The Leafs will have to PAY to make a Jenner trade, but he addresses a Leafs need

Boone Jenner would fit better with the Toronto Maple Leafs than Foligno did.

The Tampa Bay Lightning gave up 2 firsts and 2 prospects for Brandon Hagel. Jenner is more established and is cost controlled at $3.75. It will cost the Leafs to make this trade.
