The Minnesota Wild have acquired defenceman Will Butcher from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for forward Maxim Cajkovic.

 

Butcher, 29, has recorded three goals and seven points in 14 games with the AHL's Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins this season. He signed a two way contract with the Penguins this past offseason.

 

Butcher has recorded 16 goals and 114 points in 275 career NHL games with the New Jersey Devils and Buffalo Sabres.

Cajkovic, 23, has one goal and two assists in five games with the AHL's Iowa Wild and 18 points (12 goals, six assists) in 20 games with the ECHL's Iowa Heartlanders.

Talk about a player whose career took a major nose dive. From winning the Hobey Baker and having a 40+ point rookie season to not even being able to crack an NHL roster. What happened to Will Butcher?

This is just a move by WBS to clear up veteran contracts in the AHL - a rule that I haven't thought about in a while.

The Hobey Baker winners are a bizarre list of successful full-timers and total busts.  I don't know where to classify Butcher.  He was a fantastic bottom-pairing D-man in Jersey, and then just bottomed out after he got his first big contract.

A trade that involves the Pens and Allvin wasn't in on it??

 

GMPA out GM'd again 🙄

Looking at how Pittsburgh is playing. Why would we want any Penguins? Unless it's Crosby at 50% retained. Is Dumbass stupid enough for that?

Those NCAA free agents can be a mix bag of nuts.
