The Washington Capitals and Minnesota Wild pulled a minor deal on Thursday — the Caps acquired AHL defenseman Chay Genoway in exchange for a conditional 7th round pick in 2014.
Genoway, 26, is a former University of North Dakota standout that signed with Minny as an undrafted free agent in 2011.
He’s appeared in one NHL game — a 4-1 loss to Phoenix last season, in which he assisted on the Wild’s lone goal — and has spent all of this season with AHL Houston, racking up 4G-15A-19PTS in 53 games.
Here’s Mike Russo of the Minnesota Star-Tribune to explain what the deal means for the Wild:
