by Staff Writer / Anaheim Ducks
The Ducks have acquired a fifth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and a third-round selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for goaltender Viktor Fasth.

Fasth, 31 (8/8/82), appeared in five contests for Anaheim this season, posting a 2-2-1 record with a 2.95 goals-against average (GAA) and a .885 save percentage (SV%). He also played five games for Norfolk of the American Hockey League (AHL), going 3-2-0 with 2.40 GAA and .922 SV%.

In 2012-13, the 6-0, 185-pound netminder became just the third goaltender in NHL history to win his first eight-or-more career decisions (also Ray Emery with Ottawa, an NHL record 9-0-0 from 2003-05 and Bob Froese with Philadelphia, 8-0-0 in Jan. 1983). He finished the season with a 15-6-2 record, a 2.18 GAA and .921 SV%. Signed as a free agent on May 21, 2012, Fasth made his NHL debut on Jan. 26, making 19 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over Nashville at Honda Center.
