Mar 15 - 6:58 PM

The Anaheim Ducks have traded Chris Wagner to the New York Islanders for Jason Chimera.

Wagner has six goals and 15 points this season but saw a lot of top-two minutes at center earlier in the season when both Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler were out of action. The Islanders get a solid bottom-six player and that likely bodes well for New York who are one of the worst teams as far as giving up goals are concerned. He has no fantasy value but will help out the defensive side of things.

Chris Wagner scored a goal in the Ducks' 5-3 win over Pittsburgh Wednesday night.

Chris Wagner heads into Tuesday's game in Vancouver with a league-leading 135 hits through 40 games.

Wagner has been very physical this season, also adding 22 blocked shots. Unlike a lot of other players who dish out a lot of hits or step in front of a lot of shots, Wagner has been pretty decent at the offensive end, too. He has four goals and a respectable 13 points, making him a decent low-end fantasy asset. Wagner is especially valuable in DFS in games rewarding hits.

Chris Wagner has been making the most of his limited playing time in the postseason.

Wagner has been skating on the fourth line with Jared Boll and Nate Thompson. They were an effective group in Game 7 on Wednesday and while they didn't get a point in that game, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle credited one of their second period shifts as the turning point of the contest. "We had a couple of good shifts in a row," Wagner said. "We just tried to grind, do what we do. It’s been the M.O. for our whole team this year. And then they didn’t call many penalties, so we were able to get out there regularly and get some continuity. If you do have a chance to do something, you do it. You’re probably not getting that chance again." Depth is always important, but it matters much more in the playoffs. Wagner might not score a key goal in the Western Conference Final, but the Ducks will be looking to him to have good shifts.
