Wild acquire Rupp from Rangers
The Minnesota Wild have acquired Mike Rupp in a trade with the Rangers that sends forwards Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri to New York.
Rupp has failed to record a point in eight games with the Rangers so far this season. The 33-year-old has scored 53 goals and added 41 assists in 565 career games with the Rangers, Devils, Blue Jackets and Coyotes.
Minnesota, who made a splash in the off-season by adding Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, are off to a 4-3-1 start to their season.
