ATLANTA (AP) -The Atlanta Thrashers acquired defenseman Mathieu Schneider from Anaheim on Friday for defenseman Ken Klee and forwards Brad Larsen and Chad Painchaud.

The 39-year-old Schneider had 12 goals and 39 points in 65 games last season, his lone season with the Ducks. He will make $5.75 million this season, giving the Ducks a salary-cap savings of at least $3 million in the deal.

Schneider has 212 goals and 490 assists in 1,197 regular-season games in 19 seasons with Montreal, the New York Islanders, Toronto, the New York Rangers, Los Angeles, Detroit and Anaheim.
