O’Byrne’s new teammate Ben Scrivens also said something about the trade via twitter:
O’Byrne played with current Leaf John-Michael Liles in Colorado for a time, so it is expected that the two will be a defensive pairing. O’Byrne is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
