Toronto Maple Leafs looking at replacing TJ Brodie with younger defender from the Metro Division
BY JOSH AUGUST 12, 2023 (7:57)
With training camps set to start in 6 weeks the Leafs have yet to upgrade their defense. Instead the only change made is the addition of John Klingberg, a purely offensive option. Today though, a rumor surfaced linking the Maple Leafs to Columbus Blue Jackets derender, Andrew Peeke.
Additional information has the Maple Leafs looking at Peeke as a possible replacement for TJ Brodie.
Over the last two seasons Peeke, 25, has played 162 games and has posted 8 goals and 20 assists. Peeke is a purely defensive dman, starting nearly 70% of his shifts in his own zone. Peeke has E years remaining on his current contract paying him $2,750,000 per season.
While Peeke could certainly save the Maple Leafs some cap space, he would definitely be a downgrade over Brodie defensively.
