The Minnesota Wild traded William Bitten to the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday for fellow forward prospect Nolan Stevens.

Wild general manager Bill Guerin announced the deal.

Stevens, 25, was a fifth-round draft pick by St. Louis in 2016.

He has 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in 20 games this season with the AHL’s Springfield Thunderbirds.

Bitten, 23, was a third-round pick in the same draft by Montreal. The Canadiens traded him to Minnesota for defenseman Gustav Olofsson in October 2018.

Bitten has eight points (three goals, five assists) in 23 games this season with the AHL’s Iowa Wild.
