The Edmonton Oilers acquired goalie Viktor Fasth from the Anaheim Ducks for a fifth round pick in 2014 and a third round pick in 2015 on Tuesday and traded goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick in the 2014 draft.

Fasth, 31, is in the first year of a two-year, $5.8 million contract signed after a strong 2012-13 season.

Fasth has played just five games this year for the Ducks, recording a .885 save percentage and 2.95 goals against average.

Fasth sports a career .915 save percentage and 2.32 goals against average.

Also on Tuesday, the Ducks dealt forward Dustin Penner the Washington Capitals for a fourth round pick and used that pick to acquire defenceman Stephane Robidas from the Dalls Stars.
