ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Anaheim Ducks have traded veteran defenseman Paul Mara back to the Montreal Canadiens for a fifth-round pick in the 2012 draft.

Anaheim announced the deal Wednesday night after a 7-6 loss to Washington.

Mara had two points in 33 games this season with the Ducks, who signed him to a one-year, $750,000 contract shortly before training camp. He hadn't played since Jan. 18, missing eight straight games and 23 of 25 as a healthy scratch.

The Ducks reacquired defenseman Francois Beauchemin from Toronto last week, further decreasing Mara's chances of playing for Anaheim.

Mara played 48 games for the Canadiens last season before a season-ending shoulder injury. Anaheim was his sixth NHL team.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
