Rask Sets New Maple Leafs' Franchise Record.

It's a trade that not many Maple Leafs' fans like to look back on, but Bruins' fans absolutely love it. 

Back in 2006, the Bruins acquired goalie Tuukka Rask from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for goalie Andrew Raycroft. 

From the start Raycroft was pretty much a disaster for Toronto with a 3.17 goals against average and .890 save percentage mostly serving as backup goalie before becoming totally irrelevant with the emergence of Vesa Toskala. 

Tuukka Rask on the other hand of course has had a pretty solid career which includes a Vezina Trophy in 2014 and a couple of Stanley Cup runs. 

With Rask's win against the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday, Rask set a new franchise record for Toronto even though he's never played a game in a Leafs' uniform. 

Rask is now the all-time record holder for most regular season wins by a Maple Leafs' draft pick passing the previous record holder, Felix Potvin (who also played for the Bruins). 

Potvin was drafted 31st overall by Toronto back in 1990, while Rask was drafted 21st overall by Toronto in 2005.
