MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Center Victor Rask was sent to Minnesota from Carolina in an exchange for Nino Niederreiter on Thursday.

Rask is currently bogged down in a 22-game goal drought, so a change of scenery could help him jump start his season.

Minnesota Wild says Rask will wear a No. 49 jersey for the team.

The center has three more years left at a $4 million cap hit, which means the Wild will save $1.25 million annually compared to Nico Niederreiter’s deal.
