The Minnesota Wild has confirmed the Buffalo Sabres  agreed to deal captain Jason Pominville to the Minnesota Wild.

Minnesota acquired Pominville and the Sabres' fourth-round pick in 2014, in exchange for rookie forward Johan Larsson, rookie goalie Matt Hackett, a 2013 first-round pick, and a 2014 second-round pick.  

Both Wild players were pulled off the ice earlier in the day before their game at San second-round d

Pominville is an eight-year NHL veteran, and a six-time 20-goal scorer.

The underachieving Sabres are retooling for the future after already trading defensemen Robyn Regehr to Los Angeles and Jordan Leopold to St. Louis over the past five days.
