Moments ago Oskar Sundqvist was traded from the Detroit Red Wings to the Minnesota Wild. The return for Detroit will be a draft pick from the Wild.
Oskar Sundqvist by the numbers:
- In 52 games, Sundqvist has seven goals and 14 assists, equalling 21 points.
- He's compiled +/- of -4
- Sundqvist has spent 14:16 average time on ice this season.
Steve Yzerman has traded off some assets that were not going to return after this season and is stocking up on draft picks which could be used for a move in the offseason or could help continue this team to having younger talent on their roster. Sundqvist will be a solid player for the Wild and be a beneficial player on the bottom six for them as they continue a playoff push of their own.
Sundqvist does provide some playoff experience, once a big part of the St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup Championship in 2019, he will be a good piece for Minnesota for the rest of the 2023 season.
