As mentioned above. The Leafs traded up to select Biggs at #22 trading the Bruins first round pick (#30) and the Leafs 2nd round pick. The Leafs used the Flyers pick (#25 - Versteeg trade) to select Percy.
However an interesting note is that the Leafs actually had Percy ranked higher than Biggs. It was Morrison who was convinced that Biggs was about to come off the board that caused them to trade up and select Biggs instead of Percy with that pick. And this meant risking that Percy would not be there when it came to pick #25.
