Acquired from Pittsburgh in exchange for a fifth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft on Feb. 6, 2013, Lovejoy ranked tied for second among Anaheim defensemen with 10 assists in 32 games. The 6-2, 215-pound blueliner also added 0-2=2 points while averaging 21:05 time-on-ice (TOI) in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games against Detroit.

Signed as a free agent by Pittsburgh on July 8, 2008, Lovejoy has appeared in five NHL seasons with the Penguins and Ducks.
