According to Michael Russo of the Minnesota Star Tribune, Wild defensemen Marek Zidlicky waived his no-trade clause, opening the possibility of a deal to the New Jersey Devils.

The Devils have not released any information, including who would be included in the deal.

Russo spoke with Zidlicky's agent, Larry Kelly, who confirmed a report from TSN's Darren Dreger that Zidlicky waved his no trade clause to allow the trade to New Jersey. The Wild defenseman was frustrated with Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo, and met with Minnesota general manager Chuck Fletcher to give his consent to a trade.

Zidlicky has no goals and 13 assists in 39 games this season. He's also a minus-7. He has one year and $4 million dollars remaining on his contract.

The Devils have already been active on the trade market this season, acquiring both Kurtis Foster and Alexei Ponikarovsky in earlier deals.
