Defenseman Nick Boynton, who hasn’t played for the Ducks since Jan. 26, was traded Monday to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for future considerations.
The 31-year-old was playing for the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League at the time of the trade. He appeared in nine games with the Moose this season after appearing in 42 games for the Ducks to start the season. Signed as a free agent on July 9, 2009, Boynton collected a goal and seven points with 59 penalty minutes for Anaheim.
Following several healthy scratches, he was placed on waivers Feb. 1 and went unclaimed.
