Hampus Lindholm Today News 2022: Bold Boston Bruins gear up for postseason run, add Anaheim Ducks veteran Hampus Lindholm

The Anaheim Ducks, under new general manager Pat Verbeek, continued to deal on Saturday, sending defensemen Hampus Lindholm and Kodie Curran to Boston for a 2022 first-round pick, a 2023 second-round pick, a 2024 fourth-round pick and defensemen Urho Vaakanainen and John Moore

As part of the trade, Anaheim retains half of Lindholm's $5.2 million cap hit. Lindholm, 28, was set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer

He was Anaheim's sixth overall pick in 2012 and has patrolled their blue line since, while collecting 222 points in 582 games

Verbeek had spoken with Lindholm on the possibility of an extension, but as Anaheim continues to rebuild, the sides couldn't reach agreeable terms

Boston is expected to try signing Lindholm to a long-term contract as well. "Hampus has been a fixture with the Ducks for years, which we value and respect," Verbeek said in a statement. "That said, we are very pleased with our return

As I've stated since arriving in Anaheim, our goal is to continue building a team that can compete for the Stanley Cup for the long haul. Adding players and assets that fit in the age group of our existing younger talent sets us up well for the future

Curran, 32, is a career minor-leaguer who has never played in the NHL. He signed with Anaheim as a free agent in 2020

Last week, Verbeek sent defenseman Josh Manson to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for prospect Drew Helleson and a 2023 second-round draft pick
