Wild acquire Brad Staubitz from San Jose
The Minnesota Wild added some grit and toughness to their roster Monday with the acquisition of forward Brad Staubitz from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft.

Staubitz, 25, recorded 3 goals and 3 assists along with 110 penalty minutes in 47 games for the Sharks this past season. He has 4 goals, 9 points and 186 penalty minutes in 82 career NHL games.
 
"Brad is a tough, physical player that will provide grit and energy to our team," said Fletcher.

Minnesota now owns seven picks in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, including the ninth selection in the first round and four of the first 69 overall picks (#9, 39, 56, 69, 99, 159, and 189).


Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
