The Ducks have acquired goaltender Curtis McElhinney from the Calgary Flames for Vesa Toskala.
McElhinney didn’t get much work as the backup to workhorse Miikka Kiprusoff in Calgary, going 3-4 with a 3.22 goals-against average in seven starts and three relief appearances. The London, Ontario native held the same role last season, and is 4-12-1 with a 3.23 goals-against average and .889 save percentage in just 29 career games.
Toskala, who was acquired along with Jason Blake for Jean-Sebastien Giguere, did not appear in a game for the Ducks. He is reunited with former San Jose Sharks teammate Kiprusoff in Calgary.
