Ducks get conditional third for Blacker | 11/17/2013 4:48 AM
NewsThe Anaheim Ducks received a conditional third round pick and a seventh pick with Jesse Blacker on Saturday.
Orange County Register
ImpactThe package was sent to Anaheim from Toronto with Peter Holland and Brad Staubitz moving the other way. The third round pick becomes a second rounder if Holland plays 25 games for Toronto this season while the seventh rounder was originally Anaheim's own pick, a choice they dealt to the Maple Leafs last season in exchanges for Dave Steckel. The Maple Leafs gave up on Blacker because they felt he was not progressing while the Ducks picked up another right handed shot from the point.
Blacker traded to Ducks from Leafs | 11/16/2013 12:10 PM
NewsThe Ducks have acquired Jesse Blacker in a trade with the Maple Leafs Saturday.
ImpactBlacker, the 58th pick overall in the 2009 draft, has one point in five games with the Marlies of the AHL this season. The Leafs are deep on defense and could afford to make this trade to acquire Peter Holland to shore up their depleted center position. Blacker will likely have little fantasy value in the Ducks' organization.
