Penguins and Ducks Complete Huge Deadline Deal

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Anaheim Ducks have snuck in a last minute deadline deal as the Penguins have acquired Rickard Rakell from the Ducks in exchange for forwards Zach Aston-Reese, Dominik Simon, a second-round pick and a prospect.

A huge move for the Penguins who were not interested in trading any of their first-round picks or top prospects, and their still able to land a talent like Rakell who will fit into head coach Mike Sullivan's system perfectly.

So far in 51 games this season, Rakell has recorded 16 points and 28 points. He's making $3.78 million against the cap and it's quite likely the Ducks retain some salary in the move.
