It took a week, but Vesa Toskala has joined the Anaheim Ducks.
His immigration paperwork in order, Toskala will practice with his new team Sunday at Honda Center for the first time since coming over from the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Toskala has worn number 35 – the jersey formerly worn by Jean-Sebastien Giguere – for all but one of his eight NHL seasons. A team spokesperson said that Toskala’s jersey number for Monday’s game against the Kings has yet to be determined.
Goaltender Justin Pogge was returned to San Antonio of the American Hockey League on Sunday.
