NHL Trade Rumors: Minnesota Wild to acquire Matt Moulson

The Minnesota Wild have been quieter than we thought they’d be at trade deadline but they’re still looking at making a last minute trade in the 11th hour of the trade deadline. While they acquired a netminder on Tuesday, the Wild seem to be interested in acquiring the services of Matt Moulson before the deadline arrives.

 

A source tells FanSided’s Mike Straw that the deal is imminent and Moulson will be traded to the Wild.

This makes a ton of sense for the Wild who are looking for a sharp shooter to add to their lineup and if they can’t swing Thomas Vanek, Matt Moulson was always a possibility.

He’s an unrestricted free agent, and with the deadline reaching the wire it appears that the price will be right for the Wild. The question then remains will Moulson be willing to re-sign with the Wild in the offseason and will be boost them to a deep Stanley Cup run?
