Sharks Acquire Chad Rau from the Wild
Sharks GM Doug Wilson announced Wednesday that the club has acquired forward Chad Rau from the Wild in exchange for forward Curt Gogol.

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has acquired forward Chad Rau from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for forward Curt Gogol.

Rau, 27, has recorded one goal and six assists in 33 games played with the Iowa Wild (AHL) this season. He has tallied 147 points (63-84=147) in 299 career AHL games with Houston and Iowa and has registered two goals in nine career NHL contests for Minnesota.

The five-foot-eleven, 198-pound native of Eden Prairie, Minn., was originally drafted by Toronto in the seventh round (228th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Rau spent four seasons at Colorado College (2005-09) and helped Team USA win the gold medal at the 2005 U-18 World Junior Championship. He will report to the Worcester Sharks (@WorcesterSharks).

Gogol, 22, has recorded four points (3-1=4) and 149 penalty minutes in 40 games with Worcester this season. In 131 career AHL games, all with Worcester, Gogol has registered 20 points (13-7=20) and 455 penalty minutes.

The six-foot-one, 190-pound left wing was signed by San Jose as a free agent on Sept. 21, 2010.

In a related move, the Worcester Sharks have traded right wing Riley Brace to the Iowa Wild. Brace has recorded three assists and 33 penalty minutes in 24 games with Worcester this season.
