ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks have acquired centre Mathieu Perreault from the Washington Capitals in exchange for minor leaguer John Mitchell and a fourth-round pick in next year's draft.

The teams announced the deal Sunday.

Perreault has played in 159 games with the Capitals, scoring 70 points with a plus-17 rating. He has won 51.2 per cent of his faceoffs.

Perreault began his career in Washington playing for Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, who also coached Perreault in the AHL.

Perreault will be a restricted free agent after the season, but could find a solid role in Anaheim. He will compete for playing time at centre with Nick Bonino, Peter Holland and Saku Koivu.

Mitchell is a left wing who spent last season with the Ducks' AHL affiliate in Norfolk.
