The Minnesota Wild announced on Tuesday that the club has claimed veteran center Jarret Stoll off waivers, from the New York Rangers.

Stoll will likely make his Wild debut in Thursday’s game against the Rangers.

The 33-year-old center who starred in the past for the Los Angeles Kings has scored 141 goals and 382 points in 821 NHL contests. All told, he has spent time with the Oilers, Kings and Rangers. Stoll is expected to aid on Minnesota’s penalty kill.

"We’re very comfortable with where Jarret is as a player and as a person," stated Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher. ". . . It’s the right time to add a player. Losing some of the guys we lost last summer, we lost some veteran depth."

Stoll signed a one-year deal with the Rangers worth $800,000 last offseason. He will wear sweater No. 19 with the Wild.
