MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Wild have traded defenseman Greg Zanon to the Boston Bruins for defenseman Steve Kampfer.

The deal was done Monday right before the NHL’s trading deadline. Zanon was the third Wild defenseman dealt in the last four days. Marek Zidlicky went to New Jersey and Nick Schultz was sent to Edmonton.

The 31-year-old Zanon will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Kampfer is 23, with five goals in 48 career games with the defending Stanley Cup champion Bruins, who were looking for another gritty veteran on the blue line.

The Oilers sent defenseman Tom Gilbert for Schultz, and former Wild defenseman Kurtis Foster was reacquired from the Devils in the package for Zidlicky. Kampfer will report to Minnesota’s AHL affiliate.
