Anaheim Acquires James Wisniewski





Fantasy Impact: The Anaheim Ducks have acquired defenseman James Wisniewski and a 2015 third-round pick from the Columbus Blue Jackets for William Karlsson, Rene Bourque, and a 2015 second-round draft pick.



The Ducks get: a power-play quarterback who can eat a lot of minutes. The Ducks have improved their puck movement from the back end today, with Simon Despres upgrading Ben Lovejoy, and then adding James Wisniewski brings in one of the better puck movers in the league. This is a team that already has quality defensemen that fill that role with Cam Fowler, Francois Beauchemin, Hampus Lindholm and of course Sami Vatanen.

(In a trade with Toronto, the Ducks also acquired Korbinian Holzer, further upgrading their D depth)
