On This Day September 11th.

September 11: On this day in 1952, the Maple Leafs pulled off a huge four-for-one trade with Chicago by sending Al Rollins, Gus Mortson, Cal Gardner and Ray Hannigan to the Black Hawks in exchange for veteran goalie and former Stanley Cup winner Harry Lumley. Lumley would go on to establish his best individual years during the regular season for a mediocre Leaf team of the mid-1950's. During the playoffs however, Lumley failed to win a series in 3 tries and posted a losing playoff record with Toronto of 2-12.

September 11: On this day in 1981, the Leafs traded goaltender Paul Harrison to Pittsburgh for future considerations. Harrison had been acquired in the summer of 1978 and played 55 games for Toronto with a record of 17-29-5 and a 3.98 G.A.A. He had one shutout. His last game with the Leafs was a playoff game in 1981, the only game he played in the NHL during 1980-81.
