Tampa Trades Artyukhin to Anaheim

The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded tough guy Evgeny Artyukhin to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward Drew Milller and a third round draft pick in 2010.

Evgeny Artyukhin is an intimidating force on the ice, not because he can score, but because he can fight. With 151 PIMs in 73 games, Artyukhin added a mere 16 points. With more fighting sense than hockey sense, Artyukhin has limited fantasy value in all formats and can be had in late rounds or on waivers.

Drew Miller, the brother of all-star goaltender Ryan, has no fantasy value and is used primarily as a depth player in the NHL. The Lightning should use Miller on the third and fourth lines which give him no fantasy relevance.
