Minnesota Wild acquire goalie Jeff Deslauriers from Anaheim Ducks

After trading away goaltender Matt Hackett in the deal that acquired right wing Jason Pominville from the Buffalo Sabres, the Minnesota Wild followed up with a trade that acquires goaltender Jeff Deslauriers from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for future considerations.

Deslauriers, 28, has appeared in 62 career NHL contests with Anaheim and Edmonton, posting a 23-32-4 record with three shutouts, a 3.24 GAA and .901 save percentage. He made four appearances with the Ducks last season, going 3-1-0 with a 2.74 GAA and .903 save percentage.

Minnesota will likely assign Deslauriers to the Houston Aeros.
