ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -The Ducks traded left wing Travis Moen and defenseman Kent Huskins to Pacific Division-leading rival San Jose on Wednesday for center Nick Bonino, goalie Timo Pielmeier and a conditional fourth round pick in this year's draft.
Earlier in the day before the NHL trade deadline, Anaheim sent defenseman Steve Montador to the Boston Bruins for Petteri Nokelainen.
The Sharks began Wednesday tied with Boston for the best record in the NHL with 93 points. They own a commanding 25-point lead over second-place Anaheim in the division.
Moen had four goals and seven assists in 63 games with the Ducks this season. He's expected to bolster the Sharks' front line, which has been depleted by injuries to Mike Grier and Jeremy Roenick. Both could be out until the playoffs.
Huskins had two goals, four assists and 27 penalty minutes in 33 games for the Ducks before missing the last 26 games with a broken foot.
Bonino is in his sophomore season at Boston University, winning the MVP trophy at last month's Beanpot Tournament. He has 13 goals and 24 assists in 33 games this season. He was chosen by San Jose in the sixth round of the 2007 draft.
Pielmeier, a 19-year-old goalie, is 29-9 with a 2.62 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage in 41 games this season with Shawinigan-Cataractes of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
He was a third-round pick by San Jose in the 2007 draft.
