Ducks acquire Brewer, put Stoner, Beauchemin on IR

by Curtis Zupke

The Anaheim Ducks on Friday acquired defenseman Eric Brewer from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft and placed defensemen Clayton Stoner and Francois Beauchemin on injured reserve.

Stoner initially came down with symptoms last week and is the third Ducks player to get mumps this month after right wing Corey Perry and Beauchemin.

Beauchemin will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken finger. Beauchemin appeared to block a shot with his hand Tuesday against the Calgary Flames.

Brewer, a veteran of 982 NHL games, has four assists in 17 games this season for the Lightning.

Brewer, the No. 5 pick in the 1997 draft by the New York Islanders, has 74 goals and 264 points with the Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues and Lightning.

Defenseman Jesse Blacker was recalled from the American Hockey League and made his NHL debut Friday against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Ducks played three defensemen with 16 games or fewer of NHL experience in Blacker, Josh Manson and Mat Clark.
