The Blue Jackets have acquired Rene Bourqe, William Karlsson and a 2015 2nd round pick from the Ducks for James Wisniewski and a 2015 2nd round pick.

Bourque, who just cleared waivers, will report to Springfield. He was part of the trade to make the money work, but he is having a terrible season. Bourque has 10 points (2G / 8A) in 43 games between the Canadiens and Ducks.

Bourque expected to play on the Ducks top line on Friday.

Bourque skated on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in the Ducks’ morning skate and it looks like he and Matt Beleskey will swap spots tonight vs. the Wild. Bourque has one assist, a minus-2 rating and 11 shots in six games with the Ducks. A spot on the Ducks top-line might make him a cheap one-day option in a quiet night across the NHL.
