Patrick Eaves traded to the Ducks

ANAHEIM >> The Ducks shook up a stagnant trade market on Friday by acquiring a scoring winger in Dallas forward Patrick Eaves for a conditional second-round pick in this summer’s NHL draft.

Eaves, 32, is in the midst of a career season as he had 21 goals and 16 assists in 59 games for the Stars. His availability became apparent when reports surfaces that there had been no talks between the winger and the team on a contract extension.

A veteran of five previous teams, Eaves signed a one-year, $1-million extension with Dallas before the season. The low salary certainly made him that much more attractive to the Ducks, who have been dancing around the salary cap ceiling all season.

The pick, which is what the Ducks are due from trading Frederik Andersen to Toronto last summer, can turn into their first-round selection if they advance to the Western Conference finals and Eaves plays in half of their playoff games.
