Minnesota Wild trade deadline recap: Dewar, Petan traded

Follow along here for Minnesota Wild trade deadline day updates

Bill Guerin is furiously at work Friday once again for the NHL's trade deadline.

The Wild are heavily linked in trade rumors as they currently sit seven-points out of a wild card spot with just 19 games to play this season. Below are the latest moves by the Wild during a busy trade deadline day.

Wild trade Dewar to Toronto

At 2:11 p.m. The Athletic's Michael Russo reports the Wild have traded Connor Dewar before the trade deadline elapsed.

Dewar registered 14 points, 10 goals and four assists, in 57 games for Minnesota this season. Minnesota selected Dewar in the third-round of the 2018 draft. The trade potentially clears room for Mason Shaw, who recently returned from an ACL injury, and Marcus Foligno, who has been out since early February with a lower-body injury. Minnesota new center prospect Marat Khusnutdinov is reportedly set to arrive Friday and could be a replacement for Dewar

Wild send Petan to Rangers for Elson

At 11:50 a.m., the Wild traded Nic Petan to New York Rangers for Turner Elson.

Pelton had played just six games for the Wild this season assisting on two goals. Elson has yet to play in the NHL this season and has been a career minor-leaguer, playing just three total NHL games since turning professional in 2011.

Maroon traded to Bruins for player, pick

At 11:10 a.m., the Wild traded Pat Maroon to Bruins for Luke Toporowski, sixth-round pick

Maroon was signed in the offseason with the hopes his veteran leadership could help the Wild squad get over their playoff hump. With Minnesota seven points out of a wild card spot and with just 19 games left in the season, that looks unlikely to happen.

The veteran winger underwent back surgery in early February and is expected to be available for the Bruins near the end of March. Boston are one-point off the top spot in the East.
