A trade!

The Bruins are reportedly acquiring forward Nick Ritchie from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Danton Heinen.

Ritchie is signed through next season at a cap hit of $1.5 million. He currently has 8 goals and 11 assists in 40 games.

His career high is 31 points in 60 games, so...not exactly an offensive dynamo.

Dealing Heinen will give the Bruins a bit of cap space, but will cost them a three-zone player.

Still, the acquisition of Ondrej Kase meant there was one fewer forward spot.

From the analytics side:

Nick is the brother of Brett, who the Bruins waived last month.
