The Minnesota Wild acquired goaltender Devan Dubnyk from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for a 2015 third-round draft pick.
The Wild have been in search of goaltending depth for quite some time. Starter Darcy Kuemper is out with lower-body injury and the team was seeking to upgrade their current tandem of Niklas Backstrom and recent call-up John Curry.
Backstrom started Tuesday night in a 7-1 loss at Pittsburgh and Curry took over midway through the third period.
Dubnyk, 28, has appeared in 19 games for Arizona this season, posting a 9-5-2 record with a .916 save percentage and 2.72 goals-against average. He has a career record of 70-82-24 with the Coyotes, Nashville Predators and Edmonton Oilers.
He signed a one-year deal with Arizona last summer and is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent following the 2014-15 season.
The Wild are 12th in the Western Conference, ahead of only Arizona and Minnesota.
The Oilers originally selected Dubnyk in the first round (14th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft.
