Wild swap picks with Vegas, acquire Bemidji State alum Hunt
General manager Paul Fenton sent a conditional 2019 fifth-round pick to Vegas for defenseman Brad Hunt and a 2019 sixth-round pick.
Hunt, 30, was in his second season with the Golden Knights, and has seven points in 13 games with Vegas this season. He had three goals and 18 points in 45 games last season for Vegas, which made it to the Stanley Cup Final.
A native of British Columbia, Hunt spent four seasons at Bemidji State, helping the Beavers to the 2009 Frozen Four.
Fenton has been busy in the lead-up to his first trade deadline running the Wild.
