The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired forward Brad May from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2010.

"Brad will provide character, toughness, and he is a proven winner," said Leafs general manager Brian Burke. "We look forward to the veteran leadership that he will give our team."

May, 37, was a member of the 2007 Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks. This season he has played in 20 games for Anaheim, collecting five assists with 28 penalty minutes and has registered a plus five rating.

In 963 career NHL games with Buffalo, Vancouver, Phoenix, Colorado and Anaheim, May has recorded 285 points on 126 goals and 159 assists, along with 2,121 penalty minutes.

Earlier in the day, the Leafs demoted winger Nikolai Kulemin to the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.
