Toronto Maple Leafs centre Dave Bolland knows he could be traded by the NHL's March 5 trade deadline, but he isn't stressing over the possibility.

"Whatever happens, happens," Bolland told TSN's Mark Masters on Monday. "If it's staying here, it's staying here. That's my goal."

Bolland was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks prior to this season for 51st and 117th overall picks in the 2013 NHL draft, as well as a fourth round pick in this year's draft.

Bolland, who is in the final year of a three-year contract, said he's not currently concerned with the status of his contract.

"Contract will come. I could care less about the contract right now," Bolland added.

The 27-year-old has not played since suffering a severed ankle tendon against the Vancouver Canucks in early November.  However, Bolland is nearing a return and has been practicing in full with the Maple Leafs.

In 15 games with the Leafs this season, Bolland has six goals and four assists.
