The Leafs have found a place to offload pending UFA Olli Jokinen, sending him to St. Louis for a conditional sixth round draft choice.

The pick they grab here essentially factors back into the original Mike Santorelli and Cody Franson deal, making the return Brendan Leipsic, a 1st round pick and a sixth round draft pick fetched in this trade. Any asset gained here at all is gravy.

Joakim Lindstrom is a 31-year-old depth center with 6 points in 34 games. He’s an expiring contract takeback to make the dollars line up.

So ends the storied Olli Jokinen era in Toronto.

Jokinen clearly didn’t want to be here, and he couldn’t even be bother to stay off the bench for warm up before a game between the Leafs and Habs in Montreal, so good riddance. He’ll make only his second playoff appearance in an 18-year career this Spring.
