The Ducks acquired forward Brandon Pirri from the Florida Panthers in exchange for a sixth-round draft choice just before the NHL trade deadline Monday. Pirri scored 11 goals and 24 points in 52 games for the Panthers this season. The 24-year-old Toronto native is a left-handed shot who is eligible to become a restricted free agent at season’s end. His salary-cap hit is a modest $925,000.
Pirri scored 22 goals in 49 games last season. He is nursing an ankle injury that’s expected to sideline him for the next few games.
