The Tampa Bay Lightning traded forward Chris Mueller to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for defenceman Patrick Sieloff, the Lightning announced on Monday.

Mueller, an undrafted forward who won an NCAA national championship with Michigan State, is in his 13th professional season. He has 10 points in 53 NHL games, spread over five seasons with the Nashville Predators, Dallas Stars and New York Rangers. This season, he has 23 points in 31 games for Tampa Bay’s AHL affiliate in Syracuse.

Sieloff, a Calgary Flames 2012 second-round pick, is in his seventh professional season. He has two goals in just two career NHL games (one for the Flames, one for the Ottawa Senators). With the AHL’s San Diego Gulls this season, he has one goal in 19 games.
