The Minnesota Wild dealt defenseman Dmitry Kulikov to the Anaheim Ducks for future considerations.

Kulikov is under contract for the upcoming season with a pact carrying a $2.25-million cap hit, according to CapFriendly.

With the trade, Minnesota cleared a roster spot to give highly touted blue-line prospect Calen Addison a chance to crack the squad out of camp, as The Athletic’s Michael Russo notes.

Kulikov, who’ll turn 32 on Oct. 29, collected seven goals and 17 assists over 80 games with the Wild last season. He’s not known for his production, but he can make an impact in the offensive zone.

The Ducks will be Kulikov’s seventh NHL team. He previously suited up for the Edmonton Oilers, New Jersey Devils, Winnipeg Jets, and Buffalo Sabres after playing his first seven campaigns with the Florida Panthers.
