Ducks Acquire D-Man Lovejoy From Pittsburgh for 5th Round 2014 Pick

Stick, gloves, shirt. Obviously seen the Mighty Ducks movies. - Jamie Sabau

Bruce Boudreau has coached against the Penguins about a billion times. He's probably had a few run-ins with his newest player, defenseman Ben Lovejoy.

We have our first in-season trade of the 2013 season.

The Anaheim Ducks have acquired defenseman Ben Lovejoy from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a fifth round draft pick in the 2014 draft. (Thank God, Ray Shero didn't fleece Bob Murray again; Chris Kunitz and Eric Tangradi for Ryan Whitney, anyone?)

Lovejoy has only played in three games this season for the Penguins. He has zeroes across the stat-sheet on the season except for having 7 SOG's and is a minus-2.

Lovejoy played four years at Dartmouth before signing with the Norfolk Admirals for five games in 2006-2007. The next season he began his tenure in the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. For four seasons, he spent a majority of his time with the Pens minor league affiliate, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He stayed up with the big club from the 2010-2011 season until today's trade.

Everything I've read is saying he's meeting the team in Dallas for Wednesday's game against the Stars. That might send Jordan Hendry back down to Norfolk. Hendry was an emergency call up because Toni Lydman has the flu. Cam Fowler was put on IR today (he'll definitely miss Dallas and St. Louis games). And I'm still trying to figure out if Hampus Lindholm has been officially activated.

Finally, Chris has asked I include this video from 24/7 where Mr. Lovejoy takes a puck to the face.
