The Minnesota Wild have claimed forward Jarret Stoll off waivers, the team announced Tuesday.

Stoll, 33, was waived by the New York Rangers on Monday after signing a one-year, $800,000 contract with the team in August.

In 29 games with the Rangers this season, Stoll recorded one goal and two assists, while also posting a team-best 57.9 faceoff winning percentage.

Stoll entered the NHL in 2002 with the Edmonton Oilers, and later won two Stanley Cup titles while with the Los Angeles Kings.

In April, Stoll was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine. He pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors and was sentenced to 32 hours of community service.
