The Penguins rid themselves of plenty of cap space in the deal. Oleksy had only one assist in 11 games with Pittsburgh this season as he was a healthy scratch on numerous occasions. He will be a depth defenseman in Toronto with no fantasy value.

Steven Oleksy will play instead of Chad Ruhwadel in Thursday's match against Columbus.

Through two games this season Oleksy has a point, which is pretty great. However in the other 59 games of his career he's posted three goals and 20 points. Which is nice. He has 112 hits and 100 blocks in that time as well, making him a nice depth addition if your pool is especially deep.
