The Minnesota Wild were clearly in the market for a goaltender and on Tuesday they got one, just not one of the goalies people were expecting. Ilya Bryzgalov is headed to Minnesota.

The Edmonton Oilers sent Bryzgalov to the Wild in exchange for Minnesota's fourth-round pick, a pick that was acquired in the deal for Jason Pominville last year. With Niklas Backstrom hurting and Josh Harding out indefinitely, Bryzgalov is the backup option to Darcy Keumper now.
