The Minnesota Wild announced today that they have acquired goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov from the Edmonton Oilers for a 2014 fourth-round draft pick.
"Bryzgalov is a quality veteran who adds depth to the goaltending position for our team," Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher said.
The NHL trade deadline is Wednesday and the thought among experts was that the Wild would be adding a veteran goaltender.
Bryzgalov has appeared in 20 games with Edmonton this season posting a 5-8-5 record with a 3.01 goals against average and a .913 save percentage.
