TSN.ca is reporting that the Minnesota Wild have acquired former Jacket Dan Fritsche from the New York Rangers in a trade that will send defenseman Erik Reitz from Minnesota to the Big Apple. Fritsche, who had 1 goal and 4 assists for the Rangers, was placed on waivers earlier this week and cleared.
It will be ironic if Dan is in the house at Nationwide for the final game of the regular season against the Wild, hopefully representing the beginning of our first playoff season!!
Here's wishing all the best to Dan, but also hoping that Minnesota begins to fade just a bit. ;-)
