On the first day of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, the Anaheim Ducks were looking to move up from their 22nd pick.  Unable to find a trading partner to do so, GM Bob Murray opted to instead trade down to gather additional picks.

Murray connected with former Ducks GM Brian Burke to trade the 22nd pick to the Toronto Maple Leafs in return for the 30th and 39th overall picks in this year’s draft.  Burke went on to select tough Tyler Biggs with the 22nd pick.
