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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
