The Toronto Maple Leafs traded veteran center Patrick Marleau to the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday for a sixth-round pick in 2020.

The Hurricanes also will receive a conditional first-round pick and a seventh-round pick in 2020.

Marleau, 39, registered 37 points (16 goals, 21 assists) in 82 games during the 2018-19 season with the Maple Leafs before adding a pair of assists in seven playoff games.

In two seasons with Toronto, Marleau recorded 43 goals and 41 assists and played all 164 games. The Saskatchewan native has appeared in 1,657 career NHL games between San Jose (1997-2017) and Toronto, recording 551 goals and 615 assists.

The three-time NHL All-Star signed as a free agent with Toronto on July 2, 2017. He was drafted by the Sharks in the first round (No. 2 overall) of the 1997 draft.
