With the NHL’s trade deadline approaching the Detroit Red Wings made a roster addition without giving a player up in claiming Dmytro Timashov via waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The move comes after the Red Wings claimed defenseman Cody Goloubef from Ottawa via waivers on Friday.
Timashov had reportedly requested a trade from Toronto, where he was averaging 8:06 of playing time per game.
In 39 games played with the Leafs, he had four goals and five assists for nine points with a 11.8% shooting percentage. He scored 49 points for the AHL’s Toronto Marlies last season.
