TSN is reporting that the Boston Bruins have traded Chuck Kobasew to the Minnesota Wild for winger Craig Weller, the rights to Alexander Fallstrom, and the Wild's second-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft. Kobasew, formerly with the Calgary Flames, had been with the Bruins for the last three seasons, and is signed thru 2010-11.
Weller, signed to a two-year contract prior to last season, is currently on the Houston Aeros' roster. Fallstrom is the Wild's 4th-round pick in last summer's draft (number 116 overall).
In order to fit Kobasew under the salary cap, the Wild have also placed forward Pierre-Marc Bouchard on long-term injured reserve, which will allow the team to go nearly dollar for dollar over the hard cap figure while Bouchard is off the active roster. No further medical decisions have been made on Bouchard.
