Phoenix Coyotes trade C Matthew Lombardi to Ducks for LW Brandon McMillan

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The Phoenix Coyotes have traded centre Matthew Lombardi to the Anaheim Ducks for left wing Brandon McMillan.

Lombardi returned to Phoenix this season after being traded from Toronto during training camp. He missed 12 games early in the season with an upper-body injury and didn't provide the Coyotes with the scoring punch they had hoped.

Lombardi had four goals and four assists in 21 games with Phoenix and was a healthy scratch on March 25 against Detroit after failing to register a point in seven straight games.

McMillan played six games with the Ducks this season and had one assist. He had eight goals and five assists in 41 games with Norfolk of the AHL.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
