WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets stayed quiet on the first day of free agency until they made a trade to pick up a right-winger.

The Jets acquired Devin Setoguchi from the Minnesota Wild for a second-round pick in the 2014 draft Friday, adding another player in the top-6 forward mix.

General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said recently one of his top priorities was to improve at right wing, then traded for Michael Frolik from the Chicago Blackhawks at the draft. Frolik figured to compete for a second-line role, but Cheveldayoff didn't rule out making another move.

That came Friday evening when he got Setoguchi, who was reportedly being shopped by the Wild. The 26-year-old had 13 goals and 14 assists this past season.

Setoguchi had a career-high 65 points in 2008-09 while with the San Jose Sharks and hasn't come close to hitting that mark since.
