Ducks Make a Series of Moves a Day Leading up to the NHL Trade Deadline
The Ducks made a series of moves leading up to the NHL trade deadline, acquiring right wing Andre Petersson from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for defenseman Alex Grant. A day earlier, the Ducks sent winger Dustin Penner to the Washington Capitals for a fourth-round draft pick. Anaheim then sent a conditional fourth-round pick to Dallas for defenseman Stephane Robidas. The Ducks also acquired a fifth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and a third-round selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for goaltender Viktor Fasth.

Anaheim was mostly quiet while several deals were going down in the hours and minutes before Wednesday's noon (PT) deadline, but the Ducks did acquire right wing Andre Petersson from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for defenseman Alex Grant.

He finished the season with a 15-6-2 record, a 2.18 GAA and .921 SV%.
