The Ottawa Senators acquired forward Matt Kassian from the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in 2014.

Kassian participated in the Wild's 2012-13 training camp before being assigned to the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Houston Aeros, on Feb. 12. In nine games with the Aeros this season, the 26-year-old has recorded one goal and 12 penalty minutes. He did not see any playing time with Minnesota.

An Edmonton native, Kassian made his NHL debut during the 2010-11 season after originally being selected in the second round, 57th overall, by Minnesota in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

In 28 career NHL games with the Wild, he has registered two goals and 27 penalty minutes. In 229 career AHL games, all with Houston, he has recorded 12 goals, 12 assists and 505 penalty minutes.
