Philip Larsen, Chad RauThe Minnesota Wild sent 27-year-old former Tiger Chad Rau to the San Jose Sharks organization in exchange for Curt Gogol, a 22-year-old winger, earlier this week.

Gogol has four points (three goals) in 40 games with the American Hockey League Worcester Sharks this season. His 149 penalty minutes rank seventh in the AHL.

Rau was drafted by the Wild in the seventh round of the 2005 NHL draft and played nine games in the NHL during the 2011-12 season. He joins former CC center Rylan Schwartz, who has nine points (six assists) in 44 AHL games this season for Worcester.
