Minnesota Wild Trade Dubnyk, Donato to Sharks for Picks
The Minnesota Wild have traded goalie Devan Dubnyk and forward Ryan Donato to the San Jose Sharks for draft picks, in separate deals.
Minnesota's makeover under general manager Bill Guerin has been steady since the season ended.
Dubnyk went 12-15-2 with a 3.35 goals-against average, a .890 save percentage, and one shutout in 30 games with Minnesota in 2019-20. He had a record of 177-113-28 with a 2.41 goals against average, a .918 save percentage, and 23 shutouts in 328 career games with the Wild from 2014-2020.
Donato will give the Sharks some additional depth on the wing. His only full season with Minnesota included 14 goals — all even-strength — and nine assists in 62 games.
The 2020 NHL Draft begins tonight with a televised first round. Rounds two through seven will take place on Wednesday.
With the 2019-2020 season just wrapping up last week, the NHL says they are planning of a full 82 game season for 2020-2021, but have not said when that season will start.
