The newest member of the Minneosta Wild -- Jason Pominville -- is expected to make his debut tonight, playing on the top line with Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise tonight against the Los Angeles Kings.

Pominville says he was "shocked" when he found out he had been traded, but "excited" that he's now playing for a team that is "doing whatever it takes to win."

Pominville says he didn't sleep much Wednesday night after learning the news that he was traded. There's a lot on his mind, but he plans on letting his wife take care transitioning to family life in Minnesota, while he focuses on hockey.
