ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ The Minnesota Wild traded defenseman Curtis Leschyshyn to the Ottawa Senators Tuesday for a third-round pick in the 2001 draft and future considerations.

The trade completes the Wild's housecleaning of players eligible for free agency this summer.

Besides the 31-year-old Leschyshyn, the Wild recently traded defenseman Sean O'Donnell to New Jersey and left wing Scott Pellerin to Carolina.

Leschyshyn, one of the team's permanent alternate captains, had two goals and three assists. He is the kind of defensive defenseman the Senators had been looking for all season.
