New York Islanders Trade Eamon McAdam To Toronto Maple Leafs

Former Penn State men’s hockey goaltender Eamon McAdam was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday afternoon.

McAdam was traded to Toronto in exchange for LW Matt Martin, who returns to Long Island after two seasons with the Maple Leafs. The Islanders traded the 23-year old after he joined Brandon Biro and former teammate Chase Berger at their development camp at the end of June.

The Perkasie, PA, native was selected No. 70 overall by the Islanders in the 2013 NHL Draft, but never saw NHL action on Long Island. New York acquired the draft pick used to select McAdam in a 2013 trade for former top-five draft pick Nino Niederreiter.

McAdam, who spent his first two professional seasons between the American and East Coast Hockey Leagues, won 18 games during his NCAA career. He was nominated for the Mike Richter award as college hockey’s most outstanding goalie following the 2015-16 season, his last at Penn State.

During his time with the Islanders’ AHL affiliate in Bridgeport, McAdam recorded a 2.97 goals-against average and an .895 save percentage. He won 20 games in 36 appearances for the Sound Tigers.

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
