Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher said he had conversations with St. Lucie and St. Thomas assistant coach Paul Gaustad about the trade.
Fletcher said the Wild was open to trades for the Blues, as well.
“I talked to Paul and I think it’s a big, big part of the package,” Fletcher said, via the St. John’s Times.
“We want to be good in all aspects.
We’re always looking for ways to be better.”
The Blues and Jenner both had one-year contracts.
The Wild would have been eligible to pick up Jenner’s fifth-year option, but the Blues have made it clear they won’t be bidding on his rights.
The Wild’s deal for Jenner will net them $1.3 million, the team announced.
The 29-year-old Jenner has three goals and 12 points in 37 games with the Blues this season.
He has one assist and five penalty minutes in 12 career NHL games.
Jenner has four goals and 13 points in 39 career NHL appearances with St, the Blues and Minnesota.
He was selected to the NHL First All-Rookie Team in 2012-13 and has six goals and 21 points in 46 career NHL contests.
