 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -The Minnesota Wild traded goalie Manny Fernandez to the Boston Bruins on Sunday in exchange for forward Petr Kalus and a mid-round draft pick.
The Wild said the trade was approved by the NHL early Sunday morning. The NHL's salary cap increased Sunday, and Fernandez's $4.3 million salary would have pushed the Bruins over the $44 million cap if it had happened before then.
The 32-year-old Fernandez was one of three original Wild players remaining with the team. He had a record of 113-102-28 in 260 games with the Wild, with a 2.47 goals-aganst average and .914 save percentage. This past season, Fernandez and fellow goaltender Nikolas Backstrom won the William Jennings Trophy, awarded to goalies on the team that gives up the fewest goals.
The team re-signed Backstrom to a two-year, $6.2 million deal last month, sparking speculation that Fernandez would be on the trading block.
The 20-year-old Kalus was a 2005 second-round pick by the Bruins and considered a top prospect. He had four goals and an assist in nine games with Boston last season. In 43 games with Providence of the AHL, the Czech native scored 13 goals and had 30 points.
