The New Jersey Devils on Thursday bought defenceman Sami Vatanen from the Anaheim Ducks for centre Adam Henrique and ahead Joseph Blandisi. In Henrique, the Ducks get centre intensity as they deal with accidents to forwards Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler.

Sami Vatanen (born 3 June 1991) is a Finnish professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted 106th overall by the Anaheim Ducks at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

"It's a good deal for both teams that we both had needs to fill," Ducks general manager Bob Murray said on a conference call. "Hopefully this one works out for both teams."

Vatanen has 126 points in 280 regular-season NHL games.

"In acquiring Sami, we bring on a right shot, top-four defenCeman who can play in all situations," Devils GM Ray Shero said. "This move also gives us contract certainty on the back end for the next two-plus years."

In Henrique, the Ducks get centre depth as they deal with injuries to Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler. The 27-year-old has four goals and 10 assists in 24 games this season and is signed through 2018-19.

The conditional pick is exchanged in 2019 if the Ducks sign Henrique prior to making their third-round pick at that draft and in 2020 if they sign him afterward. If they don't re-sign Henrique, no pick is exchanged.

The Devils filled that need Thursday, acquiring Sami Vatanen from the Ducks in a trade that sent forwards Adam Henrique and Joseph Blandisi to Anaheim. The Ducks also get a 2018 third -round pick in the deal and would send back a 2019 or 2020 third -rounder if they’re able to re-sign Henrique.
