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.
