The Maple Leafs acquired defenceman Mark Giordano from the Seattle Kraken in a trade on Sunday, Marhc 20, 2022.

Now, he has a chance to help bring his hometown some badly needed playoff joy. Certainly his family in North York is pumped he has returned, while general manager Kyle Dubas hopes the 2019 Norris Trophy winner can shore up a blueline many think incapable of surviving very long in the May tournament.

Giordano and forward Colin Blackwell came from the Seattle Kraken on Sunday in a trade for two second-round picks, this year and next, plus a third-rounder in 2024. While Dubas ended speculation of whom he’d pluck from the dwindling number of available defencemen, he also sent defenceman Travis Dermott to the Vancouver Canucks for a third-round pick.

Giordano hopes to play Wednesday at Scotiabank Arena against the New Jersey Devils.
