Simon Despres has been a pleasant surprise on the Ducks blueline since his trade from Pittsburgh at the trade deadline.
Despres had the winner on Thursday but his solid play since the March 2 trade has impressed his teammates. "When you don’t expect much from a guy because you didn’t know the guy, it was a great surprise for everybody," fellow defenseman Francois Beauchemin said. "He was the steal of the deadline, that’s for sure. In the last few years I don’t know if there’s a guy that was traded at the deadline that’s made such a big impact on a team as he did. It was just a great move by Murph (GM Bob Murray)." May 23 - 6:06 AM
