According to an official statement released by the franchise early in the morning on Wednesday, the Anaheim Ducks have acquired goaltender Jhonas Enroth from the Toronto Maple Leafs. In exchange for the veteran goaltender’s services, the Ducks have sent a 2018 seventh-round draft pick to Toronto.

However, Enroth will now report to the Ducks’ AHL affiliate in the San Diego Gulls as Anaheim has both John Gibson and Jonathan Bernier between the pipes.

The 28-year-old goaltender has already produced a 50-69-16 career record with seven shutouts, a 2.84 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage over the course of 153 NHL games. Prior to being shipped to the Ducks on Wednesday morning, Enroth previously suited up for the Los Angeles Kings, Dallas Stars and Buffalo Sabres in addition to the Maple Leafs.

Enroth was originally selected by the Sabres in the second-round of the 2006 NHL Draft.

On the other hand, he has also performed on the international stage as a member of the Swedish National Team. Enroth most recently represented Sweden at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey while also garnering a silver medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics and gold at the 2013 World Championships.

Upon acquiring another goaltender on Wednesday morning, the Ducks had compiled an impressive 22-13-8 record through the team’s first 43 games of the 2016-2017 regular season. As a result, and thanks to their 52 points, Anaheim is currently tied for first-place in the Western Conference’s Pacific Division alongside the San Jose Sharks, who have played 41 games of their own.
