  • Wild acquire Marc-Andre Fleury from Chicago


    Well, Minnesota Wild GM Bill Guerin clearly thinks that his goaltending tandem isn’t good enough. According to multiple reports, the Wild are acquiring future Hall-of-Fame netminder Marc-Andre Fleury from the Chicago Blackhawks.

    Per Daily Faceoff’s Frank Seravalli, the package will include a conditional second-round pick that can become a first-rounder in the future. Normally, these types of conditions are met if the team acquiring the player reaches a certain round of the playoffs. One best guess would be if the Wild somehow make the Western Conference Finals, that Chicago would be sent their 2022 first-round pick.

    ...And as I was typing this, the conditions were made public.

    Fleury is a pending unrestricted free agent and has won three Stanley Cups, all with the Pittsburgh Penguins. On the defensively-terrible Blackhawks team this season, the 37-year-old has earned a .908 save percentage and a 2.95 goals against average.

    There will be more to come.


    This is now official, with the full trade being Fleury for the conditional second-round pick that will turn into a first-rounder if the Wild win two playoff rounds and the new goaltender earns four wins in the post-season.
