Ducks, Bruins swap pair of players
The Anaheim Ducks and Boston Bruins made a deal Sunday night, as the Ducks acquired forward Brian McGrattan and defenseman Sean Zimmerman in exchange for forwards David Laliberte and Steaputfan Chaput.

McGrattan, 29, appeared in 39 games for AHL Providence this season. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound winger had 4 goals, 1 assist and 97 penalty minutes. He has 182 games of NHL experience between Calgary, Phoenix and Ottawa and is 3-11-14 with 395 penalty minutes in 182 games.

The 23-year-old Zimmerman has appeared in 30 AHL games this season between Providence and Rochester. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Denver native has four assists and 23 penalty minutes. He has yet to play in an NHL game.

Laliberte, 24, is 8-10-18 in 48 AHL games this season between Syracuse and Adirondack. He went 2-1-3 in 11 games with the Philadelphia Flyers last season. Chaput, 22, had 3 goals and 7 assists in 47 AHL games between Syracuse and Charlotte.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
