TheMessiah Posted February 9, 2007 Share Posted February 9, 2007 http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=195532&hubname= The Minnesota Wild and New York Rangers have swapped wingers. The Wild send Pascal Dupuis to the Rangers in exchange for Adam Hall. Dupuis, 27, has played 334 career games with the Wild, recording 141 points. This season, the 6-foot, 196-pounder has 10 goals, 13 points and is minus-7 in 48 games. Hall, 26, has collected 12 points and is minus-13 in 49 games with the Rangers this season. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound forward was acquired from Nashville last summer, in exchange for Dominic Moore. Hall has 97 points in 293 career games. Hall is earning $975,000 this year and will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season. Dupuis is making $798,000 and will be an unrestricted free agent. "This is something that we've wanted for some time," said Wild assistant GM Tom Lynn in a statement. "Because the element of grit is not widely available in the trade market, we feel we are getting a player that brings more of that physical element while New York is getting more of a penalty killer. Having that toughness is definitely needed in a playoff push." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
