The Ducks have acquired right wing Jakob Silfverberg, left wing Stefan Noesen and a first-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft from Ottawa in exchange for left wing Bobby Ryan.

Silfverberg, 22 (10/13/90), appeared in 48 games as a rookie with Ottawa last season, scoring 10-9=19 points with a +9 rating. He added 2-2=4 points in 10 playoff games.

In 2011-12, Silfverberg had a historic season with Brynas of the Swedish Elite League, winning MVP for both the regular season and playoffs. In the regular season, he scored 24-30=54 points in 49 games, ranking second in the league in both goals and points. He then set a Swedish Elite League playoff record with 13 playoff goals (surpassing Daniel Alfredsson's 2004-05 record of 12) as Brynas won the league title
