BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A person familiar with trade talks has confirmed the Buffalo Sabres have agreed to deal captain Jason Pominville to the Minnesota Wild.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the trade has not yet been approved by the NHL. French-Canada's RDS sports network first reported the deal Wednesday, before the NHL's trade deadline hit. RDS reported the Sabres were to receive rookie forward Johan Larsson and rookie goalie Matt Hackett in return.
Both Wild players were pulled off the ice earlier in the day before their game at San Jose.
Pominville is an eight-year NHL veteran, and a six-time 20-goal scorer.
The underachieving Sabres are retooling for the future after already trading defensemen Robyn Regehr to Los Angeles and Jordan Leopold to St. Louis over the past five days.
