BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Bruins acquired Stanislav Chistov from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a third round draft pick in the 2008 draft, the team announced Monday.

Chistov, 23, played one game for the Ducks this season and three games with Anaheim’s AHL affiliate, Portland, on a conditioning assignment.

The 2008 pick that Boston gave up was acquired along with Paul Mara on June 25 from the Phoenix Coyotes, said Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli.

Chistov, a left-winger, is a native of Chelyabinsk, Russia. He spent last season playing in the Russian Super League, scoring 11 goals along with 21 assists in 47 games with Metallurg Magnitogorsk.
