TSN amends report on Kessel-Kaberle deal

MONTREAL — The respected Canadian sports website, TSN.ca, just now amended what it believes to be Boston’s offer to Toronto to acquire veteran blueliner Tomas Kaberle.

According to TSN’s report early this morning, the Bruins offered Phil Kessel to the Leafs for Kaberle and Toronto’s top pick, No. 7 overall, in tonight’s amateur draft.

Now, according to TSN, the Bruins have offered Kessel and a draft pick of their own (not a first-rounder) for the 31-year-old Czech-born blueliner.

About two hours prior to TSN reporting the change, one rumor making the rounds here had the Stars offering third-year blueliner Matt Niskanen and their top pick tonight (No. 8 overall) for Kaberle.
