The Colorado Avalanche have acquired forward Brandon Duhaime from the Minnesota Wild and Nashville Predators forward Yakov Trenin on Thursday. 

The Wild will receive a 2026 third-round pick for Duhaime while the Predators will get defenceman Jeremy Hanzel and a 2025 third-round pick. 

Colorado also acquires the rights to unsigned draft pick Graham Sward in the deal with Nashville. 

Duhaime, 26, has four goals and eight points in 62 games this season with 66 penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-2 winger was drafted 106th overall by the Wild in 2016 and signed a one-year, $1.1 million extension in the off-season.

He has 19 goals and 35 points along with 230 penalty minutes in his three-season career with the Wild.

Trenin, 27, has 10 goals and 14 points in 60 games this season. He was a second-round pick (55th overall) by Nashville at the 2015 NHL Draft. 

He is in the final season of a two-year, $3.4 million with an AAV of $1.7 million. Trenin will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. 

In 283 career NHL games, he has 46 goals and 79 points.
