The Minnesota Wild announced a minor trade today. They’ve sent forward Marc Hagel to the Ottawa Senators in exchange for future considerations.
Hagel was in his fourth season with the Iowa Wild. The undrafted 28-year-old has never played an NHL game. In 26 AHL contests this season, he has just two goals and five assists.
“Marc was an excellent competitor for us in Des Moines over the last four years,” said Iowa Wild GM Brent Flahr. “He was a good teammate and an engaged ambassador to the game of hockey in central Iowa. He wanted a chance for a bigger role and we are currently a little crowded upfront to make that happen. He wants to play every night and we did the best we could to accommodate that for him.”
Hagel is a pending unrestricted free agent on a two-way contract. He’ll join a Binghamton team that sits last place in the AHL’s North Division with a record of 18-22-3.
