Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello squashed rumors that forward Josh Leivo has asked to be traded.

Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos reported during Hockey Night in Canada’s “Headlines” segment on Feb. 3 that Leivo had requested a trade – something Lamoriello denied on Monday.

“Josh has never made a (trade) request to my knowledge,” he told Jonas Siegel of The Athletic.

Since proving his worth in the AHL, Leivo has spent most of his time with the Leafs as a cheerleader. The 24-year-old has played in just 25 games over the past two seasons, and in only 53 during his five-year NHL career. Despite the irregular playing time, he has 10 goals and 11 assists while averaging less than 11 minutes of ice time.
