The Sports Xchange — The Minnesota Wild acquired goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov from the Edmonton Oilers for a fourth-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, the teams announced Tuesday.

The pick was acquired from Buffalo last season in the trade that brought right winger Jason Pominville to Minnesota.

"Bryzgalov is a quality veteran that adds depth to the goaltending position for our team," Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said in a statement.

The Togliatti, Russia native has appeared in 20 games with Edmonton this season, posting a 5-8-5 record with a 3.01 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage. In his NHL career, Bryzgalov has posted a 213-157-50 record, with a .913 save percentage and 2.57 goals-against average.
