Ducks nab MacDonald
According to multiple reports, the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday traded goaltender Joey MacDonald to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick in 2011.

MacDonald was 1-4-0 in six games with the Leafs this season, posting a 3.20 goals-against average and .892 save percentage. He's 18-39-2 during his four-year career with the Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins, New York Islanders and Leafs.

The Ducks had a busy deadline day on the goaltending front. Earlier in the day, they dealt Vesa Toskala to the Calgary Flames for goaltender Curtis McElhinney and added defenseman Aaron Ward from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for goaltender Justin Pogge and a fourth-round pick in either 2010 or 2011.

Before the Olympic break, the Ducks sent Jean-Sebastien Giguere to the Leafs for Toskala and forward Jason Blake.
