SUNRISE, Fla. -- Forward Kyle Palmieri was traded to the New Jersey Devils by the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday for a second-round pick (No. 41) at the 2015 NHL Draft and a third-round pick in 2016.
Palmieri grew up in Montvale, N.J. He had 29 points (14 goals) in 57 games this season after setting an NHL career high of 31 points in 2013-14, and then had one goal and three assists in 16 games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The 24-year-old forward has 43 goals, 46 assists and a plus-11 rating in 198 NHL games, all with Anaheim.
The Devils selected center Pavel Zacha with the No. 6 pick at BB&T Center on Friday. The Ducks took defenseman Jacob Larsson at No. 27; they did not have a second-round pick before making the trade.
