Wild trade draft pick for San Jose RW

ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Wild added depth to the forward position on Monday by acquiring right wing Brad Staubitz from the San Jose Sharks for a 2010 fifth round draft pick.

"Brad is a tough, physical player that will provide grit and energy to our team," said Minnesota General Manager Chuck Fletcher.

The 25-year-old Staubitz totaled three goals and six points to go along with 110 penalty minutes in 47 contests with the Sharks last season.

In 82 career games, all with the Sharks, the rugged winger has four goals and five assists with 186 penalty minutes.
