Ducks Acquire Kyle Chipchura



DANIEL:

Bob Murray continued his inexplicable obsession with former first round picks who nobody else seems to want. The Canadian Press is reporting that the Ducks picked up Canadiens center Kyle Chipchura for a 4th round pick in 2011. Chipchura, besides having a pretty awesome name, has zero points in 19 games this season, and only 4 goals and 14 points in 68 NHL games. To be fair, Chipchura is considered a bottom 6 forward who will be good on the PK. Chipchura was selected 18th overall by the Canadiens in the 2004 draft. The guys at Hockey's future seem to think his main assets are his size, 6'2" 205 lbs. and his ability to be good, but not great at a little bit of everything. You can read his player profile from the last time they examined Montreal's prospects here. This is probably a move to either make Artyukhin expendable, or cover for the loss of Calder. We'll get a better idea of what Chipchura's role will be when the Ducks play the Stars on Thursday.
