Posted by: Michael Russo under Wild news, Wild player moves Updated: February 24, 2012 - 8:26 PM

Marek Zidlicky has been pulled from tonight's lineup and traded to the New Jersey Devils for a boatload of assets.

Coming back to Minnesota are familiar faces Kurtis Foster and Stephane Veilleux, 2007 third-round pick Nick Palmieri, a 2012 second-round pick and a conditional 2013 third-round pick (comes IF New Jersey makes the conference finals).

Justin Falk is playing.

Foster is very excited about returning to Minnesota, where one of his closest friends is Mikko Koivu.

 More soon.
