Ducks acquire Cumiskey from Avs
Looking to bolster their blue line, the Anaheim Ducks acquired defenseman Kyle Cumiskey from the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.
Looking to bolster their blue line, the Anaheim Ducks acquired defenseman Kyle Cumiskey from the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night in exchange for defenseman Jake Newton and a seventh-round draft pick in 2013.

Cumiskey, 24, appeared in only 17 games for Colorado last season, tallying a goal and 7 assists. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder was the Avs' seventh-round pick (No. 222) at the 2005 Entry Draft.

Newton, 23, was set to begin his second season with the Syracuse Crunch in the American Hockey League. He went 2-7-9 in 48 games for Syracuse in 2010-11. A native of San Jacinto, Calif., the 6-3, 200-pounder played one season for Northeastern University before turning pro.

In the event Cumiskey plays in 45 NHL regular-season games this season, Colorado will instead receive Anaheim's fifth-round pick in 2012. Cumiskey has 9 goals and 26 assists in 132 NHL games.
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.
