Across his career, he’s accumulated 79 goals and 319 assists. The Wild sent defenseman Andrej Sustr, the rights to forward Nikita Nesterenko and a fourth-round pick in the 2025 draft to Anaheim.
Sundqvist, 28, has 21 points in 52 games for the Red Wings this season. Detroit obtains a fourth-round pick in the 2023 NHL Draft from the Wild.
Earlier in the day the Wild traded forward Jordan Greenway to the Buffalo Sabres for two draft picks.
The Wild are 7-0-1 in their last eight games and sit in second place in the Central division. They visit the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.
