The Ducks have acquired defenseman Brendan Guhle and a first-round selection in the 2019 NHL Draft from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for defenseman Brandon Montour. The draft pick will come from either San Jose or St. Louis (both owned by Buffalo) based on the final order of selection in the 2019 NHL Draft.
“Brendan Guhle is an excellent skater who is ready to take the next step in his career,” said Executive Vice President/General Manager & Interim Head Coach Bob Murray. “Adding Guhle and a first-round pick is an important step as we retool our team moving forward. We also thank Brandon Montour for his efforts and wish him the best of luck in Buffalo.”
A little about Brendan Guhle:
Guhle, 21 (7/29/97), has collected five assists (0-5=5) with 12 penalty minutes (PIM) in 23 career NHL games with Buffalo. The 6-2, 196-pound defenseman has played the majority of the 2018-19 NHL season with Rochester of the American Hockey League (AHL), earning 5-22=27 points in 50 games as an AHL All-Star. He participated in the 2019 AHL Skills Competition where he posted the sixth-fastest time in the fastest skater competition in event history.
Selected by Buffalo in the second round (51st overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft, Guhle ranked second among Rochester defensemen in points (5-22=27), goals and assists at the time of his acquisition by Anaheim. In 112 career AHL games with Rochester, Guhle compiled 15-44=59 points with 62 PIM.
