The Ducks have acquired center Ryan Kesler and a third-round selection in the 2015 NHL Draft from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for center Nick Bonino, defenseman Luca Sbisa, the 24th overall pick (first round) and the 85th overall pick (third round) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

"It's the start of a new chapter in my life. I'm going to Anaheim to win a championship. That's my sole goal," Kesler said. "I think I fit into that organization well and can be a great number two behind Ryan Getzlaf."
