Anaheim is receiving a 2022 first-round pick, a 2023 second-round selection, a 2024 second-rounder along with defensemen Urho Vaakanainen and John Moore, according to TSN’s Chris Johnston. The Ducks retained 50% of Lindholm’s salary.

Lindholm, 28, is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season. He carries a cap hit of $5.2 million.

With the addition of the left-handed blue-liner, the Bruins’ line combinations could look something like this:
