TRADE: Wild & Bruins Complete Swap of Forwards

The Minnesota Wild and Boston Bruins have completed a trade on Draft Day #2, as the Wild have sent Vinni Lettieri and the 110th pick for Jakub Lauko and a pick.

For Lettieri, it's a return to Boston, where he played one game for the Bruins in 2022-23 while having a nice season on the farm for them. The 29-year-old recorded nine points in 46 games for the Wild this past season in 4th-line duties, playing 9:35 per game. With Providence in the AHL the season before last, he recorded 23 goals and 49 points in 48 games.

In Lauko, the Wild get themselves an energy player for the bottom six, and a solid 4th-liner. The 24-year-old notched 10 points in 60 games for Boston this season, while handing out 176 hits, all while playing just under 10 minutes per game.
