ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -The Wild have acquired center Kyle Brodziak (brohd-ZEE-ak) from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Minnesota's fourth and fifth round picks in this year's draft.

Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher says Minnesota also got Edmonton's sixth-round pick in the deal announced Saturday.

The 25-year-old Brodziak recorded 27 points in 79 games for the Oilers last season. The 6-foot-2 Alberta native recorded career-highs with 14 goals and 17 assists in 80 games with Edmonton in the 2007-08 season.

On Friday night, Fletcher used the Wild's first pick to take defenseman Nick Leddy of Eden Prairie at No. 16. Leddy was Mr. Hockey in Minnesota last season.
