NewsMark Fistric has inked a one-year deal with the Anaheim Ducks.
ImpactHe recorded six assists, 32 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating in 25 games with Edmonton last season. The Ducks won't have Sheldon Souray for the start of the 2013-14 campaign, so Fistric is being brought on board to take his place on the roster. He won't replace Souray's offense but he does add physicality to Anaheim's back end.

It was throbbing, but at the time we had four D so you don't think about it. You just try and get through the period," Fistric said after finishing the game despite getting hurt in the second period. "After the game, I said to Ladi (Smid), is there something wrong with my elbow? He said, 'yeah, you're going to need stitches.'" He has little fantasy value so pass on him at this time.

Oilers acquire Mark Fistric from Dallas | 01/14/2013 3:44 PM
NewsEdmonton has acquired defenseman Mark Fistric from Dallas in exchange for a 2013 third-round draft pick.
ImpactThe trade will be finalized after Fistric passes a physical. The Edmonton native has 257 games of NHL experience, but he never discovered a niche while with the Stars.

He doesn't have any fantasy value unless you are in desperate need of hits or blocked shots in a very deep league.
