Ducks Trade Schneider to Atlanta

The Ducks announced today they have traded defenseman Mathieu Schneider to the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for defenseman Ken Klee, left wing Brad Larsen and left wing prospect Chad Painchaud.

The veteran Schneider had long been the subject of trade rumors since the Ducks are currently over the NHL salary cap of $56.7 million and need to make room to sign All-Star winger Teemu Selanne.
