Throwback Thursday: Today in 1990, Toronto Maple Leafs acquire Mike Foligno

Welcome back to another edition of Throwback Thursday!

Today in 1990, the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Mike Foligno from the Buffalo Sabres.
Foligno, then 32, joined the Leafs after spending the last decade between the Detroit Sabres, who drafted him, and the aforementioned Sabres.
In Toronto, he went on to spend parts of four seasons scoring 27 goals and 47 points in 129 games. In his one playoff series in Toronto, he scored two goals and eight points in 18 games in the 1992-93 playoffs.
For Foligno, the Leafs gave up Brian Curran and Lou Franceschetti. He left the team in a Nov. 5, 1993 trade that saw Toronto ship him to the Florida Panthers for cash.
Foligno would retire at the end of the year having scored 727 points in 1018 NHL games.
