The Anaheim Ducks sent forwards Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for defenseman Jesse Blacker and draft picks on Saturday, according to NHL.com.

Holland, a center, will report to the Maple Leafs while Staubitz was assigned to the AHL's Toronto Marlies.

The Ducks get a third-round draft pick in 2014. However, the pick could turn into a second-rounder under certain conditions. They also get a seventh-round pick next year.

Holland, a 2009 first-round draft choice, had a goal and two penalty minutes in four games for Anaheim this season. He led Norfork of the AHL with nine points, and had 22 penalty minutes in 10 games. In 29 career NHL games, he has five goals, two assists and eight penalty minutes.

Staubitz has 10 penalty minutes in six games for Norfolk this season. He has 10 goals, 11 assists and 520 penalty minutes over 230 career NHL games with the San Jose Sharks, Minnesota Wild, Montreal Canadiens and Anaheim.

Blacker had one goal and four penalty minutes in five games for the Marlies this season.
