Wild pick up Deslauriers for future considerations
Minnesota Wild pick up Jeff Deslauriers for future considerations.

The Minnesota Wild added goaltending depth Wednesday by acquiring Jeff Deslauriers from the Anaheim Ducks for future considerations.

Deslauriers has spent most of this season in the ECHL and the American Hockey League. He played in four games for the Ducks last season, going 3-1-0 with a 2.74 goals-against average and .903 save percentage.

A second-round pick by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2002 NHL Draft, the 28-year-old Deslauriers has a career 23-32-4 record with a 3.24 GAA and .901 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
