St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Wild has acquired forwards Matt Moulson and Cody McCormick from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for forward Torrey Mitchell and two future second-round draft picks, the team announced on Wednesday afternoon.

The draft picks associated with the trade are a second-round pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, which Minnesota had previously acquired from WInnipeg, and a second-round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Moulson is the centerpiece of the trade for Minnesota, coming to the Wild after having totaled 17 goals and 21 assists in 55 games split between Buffalo and the New York Islanders.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound wing has notched 135 goals and 127 assists, including 16 game-winning goals, in 377 career NHL games with Los Angeles, New York, and Buffalo.

McCormick, meanwhile, comes to Minnesota having totaled just one goal and four assists this season, but he does also carry 60 hits and 45 penalty minutes in just 29 games this season with the Sabres.
