Ducks acquire veteran defenseman Aaron Ward from Carolina
The Ducks sent minor league goaltender Justin Pogge and a fourth-round draft pick to Carolina.
The 6-foot-2, 209-pound Ward, 37, won three Stanley Cups in 15 seasons as a Detroit Red Wing. He has one goal and 11 points with 54 penalty minutes and a minus-17 defensive rating this season and was in the final season of his contract.
"Aaron Ward brings valuable experience and is a proven winner with three Stanley Cup championships," Ducks General Manager Bob Murray said. "We are pleased to bring him on board."
