The Anaheim Ducks have traded centre Devin Shore to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for forward Sonny Milano.

Shore, 25, has four goals and 10 points in 39 games for the Ducks so far this season. The Ajax, Ont., native is in the second year of a two-year, $4.6 million deal he signed in July 2018 and will be a restricted free agent at season’s end.

“Devin Shore is a hard-working player that will add size and versatility to our lineup,” Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said in a team statement. “He can play center and wing and at 25-years-old should continue to improve and we are excited to see what he can do with our team.”

The 23-year-old Milano has suited up in 46 games during his first full NHL season, posting five goals and 18 points. The Massapequa, N.Y., native was selected with the 16th-overall pick by Columbus in 2014.
