The 26-year-old Anderson agreed to a five-year contract extension with Toronto, as he was set to become a free agent on July 1st.
The deal makes since for both teams, as the Maple Leafs were stuck with just Jonathan Bernier on their goalie depth chart. And the Ducks had a better issue, as John Gibson took over the starting role near the end of last season, into the playoffs.
The Nashville Predators also added a pick to their draft list this year, sending forward Jimmy Vesey to the Buffalo Sabres for the 76th overall pick.
Vesey was drafted in the third round last season out of Harvard, where he recorded 80 goals and 64 assists for 144 points in 128 career games. He also won the Hobey Baker Award after scoring 24 goals and adding 22 assists in 33 games during the 2014-15 campaign.
The 23-year-old decided not to sign a deal with the Predators, and he can now sign with any team on August 15th. Sabres GM Tim Murray on the chances of adding the young player said "why not us? Why not give it a shot?"
And the latest deal to be announced could've been the biggest, and that is defenseman Keith Yandle heading to the Florida Panthers from the New York Rangers for two draft picks. One pick is a sixth-rounder for this year, plus a conditional fourth-round pick for 2017.
The 29-year-old Yandle is set to hit free agency on July 1st, but negotiating rights are now in the hands of the Panthers. He has 65 goals and 246 assists during his 10-year span in the NHL, including 42 assists and five goals this past season.
