The Petteri Nummelin era has officially ended in Atlanta -- the Thrashers traded his rights to the Minnesota Wild for a conditional third-round draft pick in either 2006 or 2007.
Nummelin's years in the Thrashers' organization were memorable, and he'll be missed... ok, who the hell am I kidding? I didn't even know Atlanta held his rights (they were acquired from the Blue Jackets in the Tomi Kallio trade). He's spent the last few years in Switzerland. It's just the first Thrashers news in a while, and I'm not coming through on a couple more posts tonight, so here we go.
Fare thee well, Petteri.
