NHL.com @NHL

The Minnesota Wild acquired goaltender Devan Dubnyk from the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday for a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Dubnyk is 9-5-2 with a .916 save percentage in 19 games for the Coyotes this season. He had a poor 2013-14 season split between the Edmonton Oilers, Nashville Predators and Montreal Canadiens organizations, but the 28-year-old had at least a .914 save percentage in each of his previous three seasons with the Oilers.

The Wild desperately needed goaltending help. Josh Harding was playing like a Vezina Trophy candidate last season despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, but he has not played since Dec. 31, 2013 because of complications with the treatment of the disease and a broken foot sustained during training camp.

Darcy Kuemper has a .902 save percentage) and Niklas Backstrom is at .887; they are 35th and 40th, respectively, out of 42 qualified goaltenders this season.
