This just in, the Anaheim Ducks have acquired veteran defenseman Brian Dumoulin from the Seattle Kraken in exchange for a 4th round pick.

The 32 year old Dumoulin is in the last season of a two year deal that pays him $3.15 million. He managed six goals and 16 points in 80 games last year with the Kraken, his first season with the team. Prior to that though, Dumoulin was a staple on the Pittsburgh Penguins' blue line for nearly a decade. He was a big part of the Penguins teams who won back to back Stanley Cups in 2016 and 2017, which led to a six year, $24.6 million deal back in 2017. Since then he hasn't had the same impact that he managed during his heyday with the Penguins, but he's still a valuable depth contributor.

As for the Ducks, this transaction brings them to within $3.5 million of the NHL's salary cap floor.
