The Dallas Stars have traded forward Patrick Eaves to the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional 2017 2nd round pick.
Sean Shapiro: If the Ducks make the conference finals and Eaves plays in 50 percent of the games, the Stars will receive a first round pick.
Eaves was drafted 29th overall in the 1st round of the 2003 draft by the Ottawa Senators. Eaves carries a $1 million cap hit and will be a free agent at the end of the season.
Dallas Stars: Notes on if it’s a 2nd round pick.
“Based on draft position, Dallas will receive the middle pick of Ottawa, San Jose or Toronto’s second-round selections in 2017 per the conditions in which Anaheim acquired the pick from Toronto in a previous trade.”
