The Minnesota Wild are reportedly acquiring Arizona Coyotes center Martin Hanzal, forward Ryan White and a 2017 fourth-round pick for its 2017 first-round pick, a 2018 second-round pick, a conditional 2019 fourth-round pick and minor-league center Grayson Downing.
News of the trade was first reported by TSN's Bob McKenzie.
According to McKenzie, if the Wild win one playoff round this year, the 2019 draft pick becomes a third-round pick. If the Wild win two rounds, the pick becomes a second-round choice.
It has been reported that the trade is all but finalized and that teams are simply waiting on a trade call to make the deal official.
If the trade becomes official, the WIld would gain the third-line center they have been searching for all season.
Hanzal, 30, has 16 goals this season which leads the Coyotes and ties a career-high.
White, 28, a centerman and right winger, has scored seven goals and 13 points in 46 games this season.
