The Anaheim Ducks have acquired center Nate Thompson from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a fourth-round and seventh-round selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
A key face-off winner, Thompson had nine goals and 16 points last season in a bottom line role with the Lightning. Thompson owns a career faceoff percentage of 51.7, good for higher than half of the faceoffs he has taken during his time in the NHL. In 391 career NHL games with Tampa Bay, the New York Islanders and Boston, Thompson has just 85 points and 199 PIM.
