The Minnesota Wild has acquired forwards Martin Hanzal and Ryan White and a 2017 fourth-round draft pick from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for a 2017 first-round draft pick, a 2018 second-round draft pick and a 2019 conditional fourth-round draft pick, along with center Grayson Downing.

The Coyotes have also retained 50 percent of Hanzal's remaining salary this season.

As per the conditions of the 2019 fourth-round draft pick, should the Wild move on to the second-round of the playoffs this season, the pick becomes a third-round selection. If the Wild wins two rounds of this season's palyoffs, the pick becomes a second-round selection. Hanzal must also play in at least half of the Wild's playoff games in those rounds.

Hanzal, 30, is making $3.5 million this season, though his salary cap hit is $3.1 million. He also has a limited no-trade clause where he can list seven teams he will not accept a move to.

In 51 games with the Coyotes this season, Hanzal registered 16 goals and 10 assists for 26 points.

The native of Pisek, Czech Republic, has played in 608 career NHL regular-season games with the Coyotes and has accumulated 117 goals and 196 assists for 313 points and 537 penalty minutes.

He was originally drafted 17th overall by the Coyotes in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

White, 28, picked up seven goals and six assists for 13 points and 70 penalty minutes in 46 games with the Coyotes this season.

In 294 career NHL regular-season games with the Montreal Canadiens, Philadelphia Flyers and Coyotes, White has registered 29 goals and 29 assists for 58 points and 433 penalty minutes.

White was drafted by the Canadiens in the third-round (66th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
