The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired defenseman Frank Corrado in exchange for Eric Fehr, Steven Oleksy and a fourth round selection this season.

Before you think that Corrado is so valuable, the trade freed up salary cap space for the Penguins and nothing else. Corrado was a healthy scratch almost all season for Toronto before he was sent to the Marlies 25 days ago. He played in only two games for the Leafs this season and should be sent to WBS of the AHL at this time.

He played in 46 games last season, 39 of which were with the Maple Leafs. Corrado's time in Toronto is likely done, but nothing is official just yet.
