Toronto Maple Leafs: Dylan DeMelo Would Be a Great Trade Pick-Up

Toronto Maple Leafs may have solved their defensive problems by adding Ilya Lyubushkin this weekend. Then again, they might not have. In my opinion, the Toronto Maple Leafs still need to add a defenseman as we near this year’s Trade Deadline and the ideal target to pursue might very well be the Winnipeg Jet’s Dylan DeMelo.

Coach Dave Lowry said DeMelo (COVID-19) will be a game-time decision Thursday in Detroit, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports. The defenseman has been in COVID-19 protocols since last Thursday. DeMelo's being a game-time decision suggests he's cleared protocols but may not be conditioned to take the ice Thursday.

Jets' Dylan DeMelo: Puts up helper in overtime win

DeMelo notched an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights. DeMelo helped out on a Paul Stastny goal in the third period.
