Caps deal Mathieu Perreault to Ducks
The Washington Capitals have traded forward Mathieu Perreault to the Anaheim Ducks for prospect F John Mitchell and a fourth round pick in the 2014 draft.
A roster move was expected by the Capitals. 2012 draft pick Tom Wilson had a good preseason earned a roster spot. Joining Wilson in DC will be Michael Latta, who was acquired as part of the trade that rough Martin Erat at the trade deadline last season, and rookie defenseman Conner Carrick. Carrick just signed his NHL entry deal last week.
Mitchell will report to the Hersey Bears. Last season, Mitchell scored 10 goals and 4 assist for Syracuse in the AHL last season.
