The Anaheim Ducks have traded forward Pontus Aberg to the Minnesota Wild in exchange for center Justin Kloos, the team announced Wednesday.

Aberg, 25, had carved out a solid role with the Ducks after being claimed off waivers from the Edmonton Oilers in October. He managed 19 points in 37 games with the club before being traded, and his 11 goals put him in a tie for second on the team.

Kloos, also 25, has one NHL game under his belt and has spent the 2018-19 with the AHL's Iowa Wild, where he's recorded 12 goals and 18 assists in 34 games.
