Swarm acquire a 2013 second round draft selection and the 20th overall pick this year

Saint Paul, Minn. – The Minnesota Swarm today acquired the 20th overall pick (third round) in the 2011 Entry Draft and a 2013 second round selection from the Philadelphia Wings in exchange for the 19th overall pick (second round) in the 2011 Entry Draft and a 2013 third round selection.

"Our pick in this year’s draft was the last pick in the second round so this moves us back only one spot this year, but gives us an opportunity for a higher second round pick in a future draft,” Swarm Owner and President John Arlotta said. “Philadelphia needed a second round pick this year to complete an earlier trade so this ends up being a good deal for both teams.”
