Friedman: Watch Wild On Trade Front

(David Berding/Icon Sportswire)

Elliotte Friedman was on Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 on Monday morning.

On what he’s keeping an eye on:

“One team that’s pretty interesting to me is Minnesota. The Wild have a couple of kids in the American Hockey League – defensemen,  one of them Mike Reilly – who are getting pretty close to being ready. They have four defenseman – I think five defensemen, actually, 25 and younger. They’ve got some extra blueliners. There are teams in this league looking for D. Minnesota, I’ve been told, is a team to kind of watch – when do they pull the trigger, if they want to go and find something else to help them.

“Now, I think ideally the Wild would like to wait until those two young guys they think are ready for the NHL, but if somebody tempts them sooner with something they can really use, I know there’s teams calling Minnesota looking for their extra defensemen.”
