The Sabres acquired Jason Pominville, Marco Scandella and a 2018 4th round pick from the Wild for Tyler Ennis, Marcus Foligno and a 2018 3rd round pick.
The former Sabres’ captain had two 30-goal seasons and six straight seasons of 50-plus points when he was in Buffalo. A once consistent 30-30 threat, has failed to top 20 goals in each of the last three seasons, but heads back to Buffalo, where he will look to rediscover his goal-scoring touch in the Sabres’ top-9.

Pominville will be back in the Wild's lineup on Tuesday.
Pominville was a healthy scratch on Sunday, but will replace Ryan White in the lineup tonight vs. the Sharks. He has no points in his last four games, but has 11 goals and 30 assists (41 points) in 67 games this season.

Pominville missed the last three games with mumps, but took part in practice on Saturday and said he expected to play vs. the Sharks on Sunday. Pominville skated on the fourth line and top power play unit and has registered 12 points (2G / 10A) in his last nine games.
Pominville (mumps) will not play Monday vs. the Kings.
There was no word prior to warmups that Pominville was feeling ill, but he will not play tonight because of mumps and that puts her status for Tuesday’s game in jeopardy as well. With Pominville out, Jordan Schroeder will play when he was expected to be a healthy scratch.
Pominville (groin) is expected to return to the Wild lineup on Thursday.
Pominville (lower-body) will not play on Saturday.

The Minnesota Wild have signed Jason Pominville to a five-year, $28-million US contract extension.
The 30-year-old was acquired by Minnesota on Trade Deadline Day from Buffalo last season. He tallied nine points (4-5=9) in 10 games after coming to Minnesota. Pominville will skate on a line with Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise as the Wild open their regular season tonight.

No Jason Pominville in #mnwild practice
Yeo said Pominville is also day to day. #mnwild
We'll have to wait an see if Pominville will be available for Game 2.
Jason Pominville has been ruled out of tonight’s opening game of the Wild’s Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Chicago Blackhawks by coach Mike Yeo.
The Wild left Minnesota yesterday completely confident Pominville would play after practicing yesterday. But Pominville, who missed the regular season’s final two games after being elbowed in the head by Dustin Brown, woke up not feeling well today, I hear. Zenon Konopka will enter the lineup in Pominville's spot.
The Wild should get a much-needed boost for Game 1 of its first-round playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks with the return of right winger Jason Pominville.
Pominville, who missed the final two regular-season games after being elbowed in the head by Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown last Tuesday, returned to practice Monday and traveled with the team to Chicago. While coach Mike Yeo wouldn’t definitively say Pominville would return, all signs point to it. Pominville returned to his line with Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Kyle Brodziak, was reinserted on the No. 1 power-play unit and even practiced 5-on-3 situations.
Wild forward Jason Pominville, who missed the last two games of the regular season with a head injury, was back in practice this morning and back on his line with Kyle Brodziak and Pierre-Marc Bouchard.
Coach Mike Yeo didn't say definitively if he will be available for Game 1, ... but he's obviously returning, which will deepen the Wild's lines against a Chicago team that isn't afraid to roll four. "[Pominville] looked good in practice today," said Yeo. "He's a big part of our team in a lot of areas. The offenisve threat that he is, smart player, plays in all situations for us, and as much as anything else, the experience that he has in the playoffs and his leadership, obviously he's a big part of our team."
Official word from #mnwild is Pominville is day to day with upper body injury; too early to say on callup; update after Thurs practice
Pominville took a hard elbow to the head from Dustin Brown in the second period last night and did not return. The WIld do not play until Friday so we'll have to wait and see how Pominville progresses in the next few days.
Heatley out Pominville in for Wild at Staples Center this evening.
The newly acquired Pominville will enter the lineup for the injured Heatley. Pominville had 10 goals and 15 assists in 37 games with the Sabres this season. He will likely play with Kyle Brodziak and Devin Setoguchi.
The Wild has acquired Buffalo Sabre's forward Jason Pominville and Buffalo's fourth-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for goaltender Matt Hackett, forward Johan Larsson and the Wild's 2013 first-round draft pick and a second-round pick in 2014.
This is the update from what I previously posted. The Wild also get a 2014 fourth-round pick and give up a 2013 first-round pick and 2014 second-round pick.
