NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Devils acquired Maxim Noreau from the Minnesota Wild on Thursday, in exchange for forward David McIntyre.

Noreau, 24, will enter his fifth professional season in 2011-12. He split each of the past two seasons with Minnesota and Houston of the AHL. The 6-foot, 195-pound defenseman had two goals and ten assists in the AHL postseason, as Houston reached the Calder Cup finals.

McIntyre, 24, had been with the Devils since Feb. 3, 2009, after his rights were acquired from Anaheim.
