Maple Leafs, Minnesota Wild swap minor leaguers

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild sent left wing Ryan Hamilton to Toronto on Wednesday for left wing Robbie Earl in a swap of minor leaguers.

Earl has one assist in nine career NHL games with Toronto. He will report to the Wild's AHL affiliate in Houston.

Minnesota assistant general manager Tom Lynn says Earl "adds the elements of speed and energy that will strengthen our prospect base and improve team speed and attack in Houston."

The 23-year-old Hamilton had 20 goals and 19 assists for Houston last season, but has never played in the NHL.
