San Jose Sharks and Minnesota Wild trade a pair of minor league forwards

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have acquired forward Chad Rau from the Minnesota Wild for forward Curt Gogol in a trade of minor leaguers.

San Jose general manager Doug Wilson announced the move Wednesday, ahead of the team's home game against the Dallas Stars. The Sharks had lost four of their last five.

Rau has one goal and six assists in 33 games this season for the AHL's Iowa Wild. He has two goals in nine career NHL games for Minnesota. He will report to the Worcester affiliate.

Gogol recorded four points and 149 penalty minutes in 40 games with Worcester.

Worcester also traded right wing Riley Brace to the Iowa Wild.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
