Patrick Eaves Traded To The Anaheim Ducks

via the Anaheim Ducks,

The Ducks have acquired right wing Patrick Eaves from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a conditional 2017 second-round draft pick originally acquired from Toronto in the Frederik Andersen trade.

Eaves, 32 (5/1/84), co-led Dallas with a career-high 21 goals (tied with Tyler Seguin) and ranked tied for fourth in the NHL with 11 power-play goals at the time of the trade. Eaves appeared in 59 games with the Stars this season, recording a career-high 37 points (21-16=37) with 16 penalty minutes (PIM). The 6-0, 200-pound forward also led the team in power-play goals, ranked third in points and power-play scoring (11-5=16), and second in shots on goal (154).

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has acquired a conditional second-round selection in the 2017 NHL Draft in exchange for right wing Patrick Eaves. Based on draft position, Dallas will receive the middle pick of Ottawa, San Jose or Toronto's second-round selections in 2017 per the conditions in which Anaheim acquired the pick from Toronto in a previous trade. Should Anaheim advance to the third round of the postseason and Eaves plays in 50% or more of their games in the first two rounds, the selection becomes the Ducks first-round selection in the 2017 NHL Draft.

Eaves, 32, has recorded 37 points (21-16=37) in 59 games played this season. In three seasons with the Stars, he appeared in 160 regular season games posting 81 points (46-35=81).

The 6-foot, 200-pound native of Calgary, Alberta was signed as a free agent by Dallas on July 1, 2014.

Additionally, forward Adam Cracknell was placed on Injured Reserve retroactive to Feb. 18 with a lower body injury.

Eaves has been a revelation in DAL. Everything any fan-of-his hoped for when we honored his request for a trade.

Great defensive player with offensive abilities, who wouldn’t want him?
