The Winnipeg Jets bolstered their offense Friday, acquiring forward Devin Setoguchi in a trade with the Minnesota Wild.

The Jets landed the speedy right wing in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, the team announced.

Setoguchi, 26, finished fifth on the Wild in scoring in 2012-13 with 27 points (13 goals, 14 assists) in 48 games. Five of his 13 goals came on the power play.

He is a veteran of 384 games after beginning his career with the San Jose Sharks in 2007-08. He had a career-high 31 goals and 65 points in 2008-09.

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.
