TORONTO (AP) — The Maple Leafs have acquired Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz from the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman Jesse Blacker and draft picks.

Holland, a center, will report to the Maple Leafs and Staubitz has been assigned to the American Hockey League’s Marlies.

The Ducks receive a 2014 third round pick — it could become a second round pick if certain conditions are met — and Anaheim’s 2014 seventh round pick, which was originally acquired by Toronto in a trade for David Steckel.

The Maple Leafs need help at center with the loss of Tyler Bozak and Dave Bolland to injury and the three-game suspension of Nazem Kadri. Holland was the 15th overall, in the 2009 draft.
