New Jersey Devils deal Fraser, Pelley to Anaheim Ducks in minor deal

NEWARK, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils have acquired defenceman Kurtis Foster and goaltender Timo Pielmeier from Anaheim in exchange for defenceman Mark Fraser, centre Rob Pelley and their seventh-round pick in the 2012 draft.

Devils president and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the trade late Monday afternoon, a deal which seemingly will give the players involved a new start.

Foster, 30, had a goal and an assist in nine games with Anaheim. He also played in two games with Syracuse of the AHL. Now in his seventh NHL season, the 6-5, 225-pound defenceman has career totals of 38 goals and 105 assists.

Pielmeier, 22, has appeared in ten games this season with Elmira of the ECHL.

Fraser has appeared in four games, while Pelley saw action in seven contests.
