The New York Islanders have acquired forward Cal Clutterbuck from the Minnesota Wild, along with the 70th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, in exchange for forward Nino Niederreiter.

Clutterbuck, 25, has 110 points (62 goals, 48 assists) in 346 career National Hockey League games with Minnesota.

Prior to his professional career, Clutterbuck played three seasons of junior hockey with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League. The Wild Selected Clutterbuck in the third round, 72nd overall, of the 2006 NHL Draft.

On the International stage, Clutterbuck won a silver medal with Team Canada at the 2011 World Championships and a silver medal with Canada at the 2005 Under-18 World Junior Championships. He also won a gold medal with Team Canada-Ontario at the 2004 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
