Canucks trade Michael Del Zotto to Ducks for Luke Schenn, '20 pick

2:03 AM ET

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks have acquired defenseman Michael Del Zotto from the Vancouver Canucks for defenseman Luke Schenn and a 2020 seventh-round draft pick.

The teams announced the trade Wednesday night. Del Zotto, 28, had a goal and three assists with the Canucks this season and has 54 goals and 161 assists in 10 NHL seasons.

Schenn, 29, had played in only eight games for Anaheim this season after signing with the Ducks as a free agent in July. He has 30 goals and 113 assists in 11 seasons.

Let this be a lesson to all you kids out there:  you give nothing; you get nothing.

Actually a series of three trades:

 

Del Zotto for Schenn. Schenn buried in the A, Del Zotto can at least run a second power play unit a bit. Slight upgrade.

 

Derek Grant for Joseph Blandisi. Blandisi a nothing AHLer, Grant had a very good year as a bottom six center last year in Anaheim, big hard body to play against can score a bit, was lost in Pittsburgh's system, knows Carlyle and the team decent add.

 

Jordan Kloos for Pontus Aberg. Curious one, I know Aberg has fallen off a cliff the last month, his only skill is scoring wretched two way player, but Kloos is an undrafted undersized local Minny boy who was signed as a feel good story for the AHL Think Jordan Weal lite if you will., 

 

  So essentially it is Del zotto who can run a power play-ish, Grant who can center a bottom six line allowing Sherwood to go back to the A as he looked a bit lost in the two Ducks games I have watched recently, and getting Aberg off the roster for the Ducks whohave become disenchanted with his lack of two way play. All three moves combined make the Ducks marginally better. Add in the return of Rackell and the expected soon to return Perry and the Ducks are in as good of shape as a team that has lost 12 in a row can be.

  OH and the Ducks recalled Troy Terry (finally) who has been killing it at San Diego and the teams top offensive prospect Max Jones. both should help fix a lot of the problems the ducks have had with scoring, both play solid two way games as well. And Eaves was sent down to rehab for a couple of games and should be back soon. The ducks should be fine, I think all this tinkering added together makes them a much better team.

This could be a precursor to another trade soon to maybe go down...Ducks about to blow it up maybe...

Do you get the feeling ol' Chuck got a call from Homer asking about why he didn't get del Zotto or Schenn?
