Torres will remain in AHL San Jose despite being traded to the Maple Leafs on Monday along with two second round draft picks in exchange for Nick Spaling and Roman Polak.

Since being traded to San Jose in 2013, Torres has played in just 16 games due to injuries and suspensions. After being acquired by Toronto, the veteran was loaned right back to his current AHL team, a clear sign the winger is unlikely to see any NHL action the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign. An unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, Torres is merely another piece in the Maple Leafs' plan to free up cap space for 2016-17.
