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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
