Default Ducks land Weight, make room for Niedermayer

The Anaheim Ducks created the cap room needed to bring back All-Star defenseman Scott Niedermayer on Friday by sending center Andy McDonald to the St. Louis Blues for center Doug Weight, left wing Michal Birner and a seventh-round pick in the 2008 Entry Draft.

The trade allows the Ducks to make enough room under the cap for Niedermayer, who announced earlier this week he was returning to the Ducks after considering retirement. Anaheim would have been over the cap next season had it not shed significant salary.

Weight, 36, is a four-time NHL All-Star, but is off to a slow start this season with just four goals, 11 points, a plus-4 rating and 12 penalty minutes in 29 games. All four of his goals have come in his last five games. He is an unrestricted free agent after this season.
