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.

From the press release:

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have acquired a fourth-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Draft and forward John Mitchell from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward Mathieu Perreault, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Mitchell will report to Hershey.

Mitchell, 27, collected 14 points (10 goals, 4 assists) and 48 penalty minutes in 61 games with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL) last season.

The Caps run their season record to 8-2-0 with the 5-4 win and stole two points from their Western Conference opponent, when defeat seemed all but certain early. [Read more…]
