Wild deal Peter Kalus to Jackets
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.
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.
