Arizona's crease situation got a bit busy on Sunday evening.

The Arizona Coyotes have traded goaltender Scott Wedgewood to the Dallas Stars in exchange for a 2023 fourth-round draft pick.

Wedgewood, 29, was picked up on waivers early in the season from New jersey and posted a 10-12-2 record in 26 games with the Coyotes. Wedgewood has been a serviceable backup goaltender for Arizona and had previous experience with the team dating back to 2017-18. Despite moving around multiple times in his career, including AHL stints with the Buffalo Sabres' and Los Angeles Kings' organizations, Wedgewood has played the entirety of his 69-game career with Arizona and New Jersey over two stints with each team.

With Anton Khudobin on the sidelines, Wedgewood is an extra body for a Stars team that's still trying to force its way into a playoff spot. For the cost, it's a solid pickup for the Stars.

TSN's Darren Dreger also reported that the Coyotes are close to signing 25-year-old Karel Veljmeka to a multi-year deal.
