The Capitals announced via press release that they have traded center Mathieu Perreault to the Anaheim Ducks for a 2014 fourth-round draft pick and AHL prospect John Mitchell. The move pares the Capitals roster down to the required 23, and also clears cap room for Michael Latta and prospect Tom Wilson to be on the opening night roster.
