The Ducks have acquired Ryan Kesler and 2015 third-round pick from the Canucks for Nick Bonino, Luca Sbisa, the 24th overall pick and the 85th overall pick in this year's draft.
Kesler scored 25 goals and 18 assists (43 points) but was a career worst minus-15 in 77 games this season. Kesler has spent his entire 10-year career with the Canucks but will now move the Anaheim where he will likely centre the second line behind Ryan Getzlaf. This trade makes the Ducks a much more difficult team to play against, especially come playoff time. Kesler will turn 30 in August and is signed through the next two seasons at a $5 million dollar cap-hit.
Kesler (knee) will return to the Canucks lineup Sunday.
Kesler has missed the last four games since injuring his knee on March 12th. Expect Jordan Schroeder to sit with Kesler returning. He should centre the second line as usual and skate with the Sedin's on the first power-play unit.

Kesler will miss the rest of the Vancouver Canucks road trip, heading back to Vancouver to have his knee further evaluated.
Kesler left Wednesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Winnipeg Jets in the second period after a knee-on-knee hit from the Jets' Jim Slater. Kesler was seen wearing a brace after the game and is expected to be out for a while. In 67 games with Vancouver this season the 29-year-old has 22 goals and 18 assists. A tough season is about to get a little more difficult for the Canucks.
