Edmonton, AB, Canada (4E Sports) – The Edmonton Oilers have sent a pair of draft picks to the Anaheim Ducks for veteran goaltender Viktor Fasth.

The Ducks received a fifth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft and a third-round choice in the 2015 NHL Draft in exchange for Fasth.

The 31-year-old Fasth has played just five games this season because of injuries. He is 2-2-1 with a 2.95 goals-against average and .885 save percentage.

The Ducks signed Fasth to a two-year, $5.8 million contract after a strong rookie season in 2012-13. He went 15-6-2 with a .921 save percentage and 2.18 GAA after several strong years in Sweden.

Aside from Fasth, the Oilers acquired goalie Ben Scrivens from the Los Angeles Kings earlier this season.

The Oilers began the season with Devan Dubnyk as their starter but traded him to the Nashville Predators.

They also signed Ilya Bryzgalov as a free agent but shipped him to the Minnesota Wild.
