Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman was first to report the trade.
A second round pick for Brandon Pirri I can kind of see. Getting a sixth shows #FlaPanthers just wanted him gone. Don't know why.

Following a 2014-15 campaign that saw him score 22 goals in 49 games, Pirri has taken a step back this year. The 24-year-old pending restricted free agent had 11 goals and 24 points in 52 games for the Atlantic Division leading Panthers.
It’s somewhat fitting that Pirri goes to the Ducks considering on his Twitter profile page he is seen with a group of friends wearing a Mighty Ducks jersey — the one from the popular ’90s film.
