Maple Leafs' Josh Leivo: Little-used forward protected by team

Leivo was included among seven forwards protected by the Maple Leafs in advance of the upcoming NHL expansion draft.

Leivo spent most of last season on the team's black aces and rarely got into a game. But when he did, he produced -- Leivo tallied 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in 13 games. It remains to be seen if this guarantees him a job with the Leafs next season or if it just means general manager Lou Lamoriello wants him as part of an upcoming trade (rather than losing him for nothing to Vegas).
