The Minnesota Wild traded forward Victor Rask to the Seattle Kraken for future considerations, both teams announced Monday.

Minnesota is retaining 50% of his salary.

Rask can be an unrestricted free agent after this season. Current Kraken general manager and former Carolina Hurricanes executive Ron Francis signed Rask to his current six-year, $24-million contract in 2016.

The 29-year-old has five goals and eight assists in 29 contests this season and last suited up for an NHL game Feb. 14. Minnesota placed him on waivers in early January.

Rask logged 10 points in 10 games with the AHL’s Iowa Wild this season.

A second-round pick of the Hurricanes in 2011, Rask has 215 career points in 488 NHL games.
