Capitals acquire F Dustin Penner from Ducks for 4th-round draft pick

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have acquired forward Dustin Penner from the Anaheim Ducks for a fourth-round pick in this year's draft.

The 31-year-old Penner gives the Capitals a potential top-line left wing as they make a push to get into playoff position with 20 games to go in the regular season.

The Capitals announced the deal Tuesday, one day before the NHL's trade deadline.

Penner has played for the Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim over nine seasons. He has appeared in 571 career games, scoring 150 goals with 157 assists.

This season, he has 13 goals, 19 assists and 28 penalty minutes in 49 games with the Ducks.

The deal returns to the Ducks the fourth-round pick they sent to Washington in the trade for Mathieu Perreault in September.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
