ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has acquired left wing Ryan Garbutt from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for left wing Jiri Sekac.

Garbutt, 30 (8/12/85), has scored 32-44=76 points with 242 penalty minutes (PIM) in 241 career NHL games with Dallas and Chicago. In 2013-14, Garbutt collected a career-high 17 goals and 32 points (17-15=32) along with a +10 rating in 75 games with the Stars. The 6-0, 195-pound winger went on to score three goals against Anaheim in the First Round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Garbutt recorded 2-4=6 points with 27 PIM in 43 games with Chicago this season. He was acquired from Dallas with Trevor Daley in exchange for Patrick Sharp and Stephen Johns on July 10, 2015. Garbutt originally signed as a free agent with Dallas on July 1, 2011 after leading the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League (AHL) with a +27 rating in 2010-11. A 2009 graduate of Brown University, Garbutt was named to the All-Academic Team twice in his four seasons in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC).
