The Florida Panthers have dealt forward Tomas Fleischmann to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Dany Heatley and a 2015 third-round pick.
The deal reunites Fleischmann with coach Bruce Boudreau as the two were together in Washington. The pair also won a Calder Cup together with the Hershey Bears in 2006.
Fleischmann, 30, has seven goals and 14 assists in 52 games this season.
Heatley, who has a $1 million cap hit, was held pointless in six games this season prior to being waived by the Ducks. He registered two goals and five assists in 25 AHL games with the Norfolk Admirals.
Heatley is expected to remain in the AHL and report to the San Antonio Rampage.
Both players will become unrestricted free agents after this season.
According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, Fleischmann had a partial no-trade clause, but the Ducks were on his list of teams he was willing to go to.
In a separate transaction the Panthers assigned Garrett Wilson to San Antonio and activated Brandon Pirri off of injured reserve. David Bolland was also placed on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 21.
