The Minnesota Wild had to part with one of its goaltending prospects to acquire veteran NHL forward Jason Pominville on Wednesday, so they added goaltending depth in the organization with another trade.
The Anaheim Ducks announced on their website that Minnesota acquired goaltender Jeff Deslauriers Wednesday in exchange for future considerations.
Earlier, the Wild traded Matt Hackett, 23, along with rookie forward Johan Larsson, a 2013 first-round draft pick, a 2014 second-rounder to Buffalo for Pominville and a 2014 fourth-round pick.
Deslauriers, 28, has played in 62 career NHL games with Anaheim and the Edmonton Oilers with a 23-32-4 record, 3.24 goals-against average and .901 save percentage. Deslauriers signed as a free agent with the Ducks on July 12, 2011, and made four appearances in the NHL last season, going 3-1-0 with a 2.74 goals-against average and .903 save percentage. But he was stuck behind veteran Jonas Hiller and rookie Victor Fasth with the Ducks this season.
Deslauriers has played eight games for the Fort Wayne Komets of the East Coast Hockey League with a 6-8-0-1 record, 32.5 goals-against average and .902 save percentage. He played two games with Anaheim's team in the American Hockey League, Norfolk, with a 1-1-0 record, 3.51 goals-against average and .889 save percentage.

During the waning hours (and minutes) of the NHL trade deadline, the Buffalo Sabres struck a deal to trade their captain and right winger Jason Pominville to the Minnesota Wild. In return, Buffalo receives goaltender Matt Hackett and left winger Johan Larsson. This deal is under the condition that the players pass physical examinations by the respective teams.
Sabres trade captain Jason Pominville to Wild, will receive rookie forward Johan Larsson and rookie goalie Matt Hackett in return.Pominville, is a member of my fantasy hockey team. I expect the eight-year NHL veteran, and six-time 20-goal scorer to be a great fit in Minnesota.

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,
Darcy Regier didn’t want to use the R-word while announcing that Jason Pominville had been traded to Minnesota for two prospects and two draft picks Wednesday. The coy general manager didn’t need to get specific. Anyone listening understood he was talking about some derivative of rebuilding.

It seems like such a cliché to start something about Jason Pominville with Game 5 of the Ottawa series in the 2006 playoffs. But really where else can something about Jason Pominville begin? There are very few people in Buffalo who can’t vividly recall Pominville skating around Daniel Alfredsson, Jay McKee flying out of the penalty box, and Rick Jeanneret bellowing his now...
