Ducks trade Hagelin to Pittsburgh for Perron, Clendening
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Anaheim Ducks have traded forward Carl Hagelin to the Pittsburgh Penguins for forward David Perron and defenseman Adam Clendening.
The Ducks announced the trade Friday night after their victory over Dallas.
Hagelin had four goals and eight assists in 43 games with the Ducks. Anaheim acquired him in an offseason trade with the New York Rangers for Emerson Etem, and then signed him to a four-year, $16 million contract.
The speedy Hagelin struggled to find a scoring groove with the Ducks, who have the NHL's lowest-scoring offense by far this season.
Perron is a three-time 20-goal scorer who has only 16 points in 43 games this season with the Penguins. The physical left wing spent his first six NHL seasons with St. Louis. Pittsburgh acquired Perron from Edmonton for a 2015 first-round pick and Rob Klinkhammer last January.
Clendening has five points in 30 career NHL games.
