Wild acquire D Marc-Andre Bergeron from Anaheim for third-round pick

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Wild have acquired defenceman Marc-Andre Bergeron from the Anaheim Ducks for a third-round pick in this year’s NHL draft.

Bergeron, 27, had 19 points (9-10) in 55 games last season with Anaheim and the New York Islanders.

“Marc-Andre is an offensively skilled defenceman who will add puck-moving ability and a good point shot to our team,” Wild president and GM Doug Risebrough said in a release Tuesday.
