NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Bryan Bickell is sticking with Chicago. Dave Bolland is on his way to Toronto.

Bolland's Game 6 game winner that gave the Blackhawks their second Stanley Cup in four years was the last goal he'll score for the team.

The Blackhawks traded Bolland to the Maple Leafs for three draft picks Sunday at the NHL Draft. Chicago received the 51st and 117th picks this year, and a fourth-rounder next season.

``Thank you for everything Chicago! Such amazing memories,'' Bolland wrote on Twitter. ``I look forward to playing in front of my home fans wearing the Maple Leaf.''

Bolland's departure allowed Chicago to sign Bickell to a four-year deal. Bickell was eligible for unrestricted free agency and cashed in after coming up with a big postseason despite against Boston in the Stanley Cup final with a sprained right knee.

But the 27-year-old Bickell, drafted by Chicago in 2004, wanted to remain with the Blackhawks and was open to giving the team a discount in order to stay.

``We have a great core of guys and we won two Cups in four years and there's going to be many more to come,'' he said after Chicago won the Stanley Cup Monday in Boston. ``And I'm willing to do it because it's fun and winning is fun.''

Bickell provided a physical presence in front of the net that proved crucial in the march to the Stanley Cup, especially in the last two rounds against the Los Angeles Kings and Bruins. He had the tying goal with 1:16 left in the third period and Bolland scored 17 seconds later in Chicago's 3-2 win that clinched the title.

Bolland missed the entire first-round series vs. Minnesota with an injury.
