The Arizona Coyotes have acquired forward Teemu Pulkkinen from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for future considerations.

Pulkkinen was waived by the Wild on Sunday. Minnesota had claimed him off of waivers from Detroit earlier in the year.

The 25-year-old has put up big points in the AHL, with 18 goals and 36 points in 47 games this season, but has struggled to produce at the NHL level.

The Finn has just one goal in nine games this season with Minnesota.
