The Minnesota Wild announced Tuesday that they have traded minor-league forward Petr Kalus to the Columbus Blue Jackets for future considerations.

Kalus, a 23-year-old native of the Czech Republic, has 6 goals, 8 points and 68 penalty minutes in 34 games for the Houston Aeros, Minnesota's AHL farm team. He was originally taken by Boston in the second round No. 39) in the 2005 Entry Draft and made his NHL debut with Boston in 2006-07, scoring 4 goals and adding an assist in nine games.

Boston traded Kalus to Minnesota in the summer of 2007. This is his fourth season with the Aeros; his only stint with the Wild was a two-game recall in 2009-10 in which he did not score.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
