PITTSBURGH — The Minnesota Wild have traded forward Jason Zucker to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Wild confirmed the deal, receiving Alex Galchenyuk, Calen Addison, and a conditional 2020 first-round draft pick.
"Jason Zucker is a top-six forward that we think will be a great fit for our group. He's a proven goal scorer, and with three more years on his current contract, he has the potential to make an impact for us moving forward," Penguins GM Jim Rutherford said in a statement.
Zucker was sixth on the Wild roster this season 14 goals and 29 points in 45 games.
The 28-year-old had spent his entire NHL career in Minnesota so far.
Zucker's contract runs through the 2022-23 season, with an average annual value of $5.5 million.
