ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi are bringing their friendship and their shoot-first mentality to Minnesota.

The Wild acquired the wingers in separate trades with the San Jose Sharks. They donned their new dark green jerseys for the first time Monday while meeting the media.

The Wild were last in the league this past season in shots on goal, and Heatley and Setoguchi will be relied on to rev up the offense.

The 30-year-old Heatley had a down season by his standards, but his 26 goals were still more than any Wild player has scored in any of the last three years. The 24-year-old Setoguchi says “in order to be a successful team, you’ve got to shoot the puck.”
