RDS is reporting that the Minnesota Wild have sent Benoit Pouliot to the Montreal Canadians for Guillaume Latendresse. TSN's Bob McKenzie is confirming.
#67 / Left Wing / Minnesota Wild

|2009 - Guillaume Latendresse||23||2||1||3||-4||4||0||0||0||0||27||7.4|
Well, I guess this is essentially trying to shift two guys who may be able to benefit from a change in scenery. I'm not impressed with the trade, but many folks who hated Pouliot will be super excited and all that.
Just another wasted first round draft choice by Doug Risebrough.
