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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
