The Minnesota Wild acquired Graeme Clarke from the New Jersey Devils on Friday in exchange for fellow forward Adam Beckman.

Both players are 23 years old. They were drafted five picks apart in the third round in 2019, with Beckman going 75th overall and Clarke 80th.

Clarke, a Minnesota native, made his NHL debut in 2023-24 and appeared in three games with zero points for the Devils.

Beckman played in each of the past three seasons for the Wild, accumulating three assists across 23 games.

Both played primarily in the AHL last season, with Clarke notching 49 points (25 goals, 24 assists) in 67 games at Utica and Beckman delivering 33 points (19 goals, 14 assists) in 51 games at Iowa.
