The Anaheim Ducks have traded winger Devante Smith-Pelly to the Montreal Canadiens for winger Jiri Sekac.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin has once again dealt for a forward near the trade deadline. He wanted to add physical size to his forward lines and gets it in Smith-Pelly, a 22-year-old promising power forward who can play either wing but was seeing irregular ice time of late. Smith-Pelly also has some playoff experience. The Ducks land a 22-year-old rookie forward in Sekac, who has shown some promise as a skill winger but was a healthy scratch in several recent games. It should work out as a good deal for both clubs.
