Leafs Send Carrick To Dallas

The Toronto Maple Leafs didn't take any chances of losing defenceman Connor Carrick for nothing on waivers.

The Dllas Stars have acquired Carrick from Toronto for a conditional seventh-round draft pick next year.

The draft pick will become a sixth-rounder if he plays in 50 N-H-L games this season.

Carrick didn't make the Leafs out of camp and would have had to clear waivers to join the A-H-L Marlies.
