The Minnesota Wild have acquired veteran forward Patrik Elias earlier today in a trade that sent young defenceman Marco Scandella and goaltender Josh Harding to the New Jersey Devils. "We wanted a bit more punch to our offence and that's what we got. Patrik will be able to provide scoring either from the wing or center if necessary, and his leadership and experience will be a great addition in the locker room. This is one more step towards our goal: win the Stanley Cup" said Minnesota's GM.[/CENTER]
Confirm the trade.
The rebuild continues, trading Elias was hard but he is UFA to be so we did what we had and could do.
Adding Harding and Scandela will help our team for years to come.
