ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Minnesota Wild have traded forward Casey Wellman to the Rangers for center Erik Christensen and a conditional seventh-round draft choice.
Wellman, 24, has two goals and five assists in 14 games with the Wild this season. He has spent most of his time this season with the Wild’s AHL affiliate in Houston, where he had 13 goals and 11 assists in 25 games.
Christensen should help the Wild’s depth at center. The 28-year-old had one goal and four assists in 20 games with the Rangers. His best season came with Pittsburgh in 2006-07, when he scored 18 goals.
The conditional draft choice the Wild will receive is in 2013.
