The Anaheim Ducks have acquired center Mathieu Perreault from the Washington Capitals in exchange for minor leaguer John Mitchell and a fourth-round pick in next year's draft. The teams announced the deal Sunday. Perreault has played in 159 games with the Capitals, scoring 70 points with a plus-17 rating. He has won 51.2 percent of his faceoffs. Perreault began his career in Washington playing for Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, who also coached Perreault in the AHL. Perreault will be a restricted free agent after the season, but could find a solid role in Anaheim. He will compete for playing time at center with Nick Bonino, Peter Holland and Saku Koivu. Mitchell is a left wing who spent last season with the Ducks' AHL affiliate in Norfolk.
