NHL action: Kabrle ‘returns’ to Toronto

23-01-2012

Czech defenseman Tomáš Kabrle spent 12 seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs but on Saturday he ‘returned’ to Toronto in a new jersey – that of traditional Toronto rivals the Montreal Canadiens (the defenseman was dealt to Montreal in December in exchange for fellow Czech player Jaroslav Špaček, after spending only part of the season in Carolina). Montreal won the game 3:1, scoring two in the 3rd period: Montreal’s opening goal followed a shot by Plekanec which bounced off the glass to Rene Bourque who put it away.
