The Anaheim Ducks were busy on the trade front on Monday, sending forward Stanislav Chistov to the Boston Bruins for a 2007 or 2008 third-round draft pick and acquiring forward George Parros from the Colorado Avalanche for a second-round pick in 2007.
A third deal saw tough winger Todd Fedoruk go to the Philadelphia Flyers for a fourth-round draft pick in 2007.
''It was clear to us that this was going to be a lengthy injury in terms of when he'll be able to come back and perform his job again,'' said Ducks general manager Brian Burke. ''I don't like playing without a heavyweight. I think everyone knows that.''
The moves cleared US$800,000 of payroll from Anaheim's books. They added Parros' $450,000 salary while losing Fedoruk's $450,000 and Chistov's $800,000.
The 23-year-old played with Anaheim in 2002-03 but spent last season in Russia, scoring 11 goals and 21 assists in 47 games with Metallurg Magnitogorsk.
Chistov produced 12 goals and 30 points in 79 games in 2002-03, then added four goals and two assists in 21 playoff games. He struggled the following season, managing only two goals and 18 points in 56 games before winding up with Cincinnati of the AHL.
Fedoruk, 27, played four seasons with the Flyers before being traded to Anaheim in 2005. In 306 NHL games, he has 14 goals, 54 points and 701 penalty minutes.
Parros, 26, was acquired by the Avalanche through waivers from the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 3. A shoulder injury kept him out for nine games this season.
''If I had my choice to be traded anywhere I'd probably choose Anaheim,'' said Parros. ''So, I'm really excited to be headed there.''
