Wild trades Devin Setoguchi, signs Matt Cooke


The Minnesota Wild remained active Friday night, trading forward Devin Setoguchi to the Winnipeg Jets for a 2014 second-round draft pick, according to the Star Tribune.

General manager Chuck Fletcher then turned around and signed free agent Matt Cooke to a three-year, $7.5 million deal.

Cooke, 34, is known as a skilled for forward with a knack for getting under the skin of opponents. Wild fans may remember Cooke from his days with rival Vancouver.

Even though Cooke is known throughout the NHL as a dirty player, he has cleaned up his act over the last two seasons in Pittsburgh.

His dirtiest act in the NHL may have been this hit on a Boston player in 2010.

Setoguchi scored 27 goals in 117 games during his two years in Minnesota.
