The Columbus Blue Jackets acquired six-time All-Star center Sergei Fedorov and a fifth-round pick in 2006 on Tuesday from the Anaheim Mighty Ducks for forward Tyler Wright and rookie defenseman Francois Beauchemin.
The 35-year-old Fedorov had one assist in five games this season for Anaheim, his second with the Mighty Ducks after 13 seasons with Detroit. He recently returned from a groin injury that sidelined him for 13 games.
The Mighty Ducks will gain much-needed room under the new NHL salary cap.
“I couldn’t sell this as a stand-alone hockey deal and I won’t try to, there’s a cap consideration here, but it’s also players that we think will help” Anaheim executive vice president and general manager Brian Burke said.
