The Anaheim Ducks have acquired forward Patrick Eaves from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a conditional 2017 second-round draft pick originally acquired from Toronto in the Frederik Andersen trade.
If the Ducks advance to the Western Conference Final and Eaves plays in 50 percent or more of their games in the first two rounds, the conditional pick becomes the Ducks' 2017 first-round pick.
Eaves, 32, co-led Dallas with a career-high 21 goals and added 16 assists for 37 points in 59 games with the Stars.
Selected by Ottawa in the first round (29th overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft, Eaves has collected 120 goals and 107 assists for 227 points with 198 penalty minutes in 604 career NHL games with Ottawa (2005-08), Carolina (2007-09), Detroit (2009-14), Nashville (2013-14) and Dallas (2014-17).
Eaves is earning $1 million this season and can become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
