Wild Acquires Second-Round Pick From Winnipeg For Setoguchi
Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher has remained busy on the first day of free agency, his latest move coming as Minnesota acquires a second-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for forward Devin Setoguchi.
The move frees up salary cap space as the first day of NHL free agency winds down.
Setoguchi, 26, collected 27 points (13-14=27) in 48 games with Minnesota last season and added one goal in five playoff contests. The Taber, Alta., native has recorded 222 points (116-106=222) and 137 penalty minutes (PIM) in 384 career NHL games during six seasons with San Jose and Minnesota.
