The Minnesota Wild have acquired Dan Fritsche from the New York Rangers in exchange for defenseman Erik Reitz.

Hockey Wilderness would like to welcome new Wild team member Dan Fritsche from the New York Rangers. This marks the third relatively inconsequential roster move in a week going back to the Robbie Earl acquisition.

“Dan is a versatile player who can play center or wing, a determined player who makes the game harder on the opposition, and a winning player - he's won a Memorial Cup and a World Junior Championship for Team USA,” said Risebrough.

If that were true, then why has he only played in 16 games for a less than adequate Ranger squad? However, since shipping Reitz was part of the deal, it did remove an overmatched defenseman, and swapped one American for another.

So, seems like Risebrough has his trading shoes on. Who's next?
