Wild Sign Brodziak

The Wild have avoided arbitration with recently acquired forward Kyle Brodziak by signing the youngster to a three-year deal worth $3.45M.

Brodziak, 25, was acquired by the Wild from the Edmonton Oilers at this year’s NHL Entry Draft.  In 175 games, all with the Oilers, Brodziak has posted 26 goals and 59 points, as well as a -6 rating.  He was acquired to give the team depth at the center position, as well as because of his ties to new coach Todd Richards, who Brodziak posted a 24 goal, 56 point season for in the AHL in ’06-’07.

The signing of Brodziak leaves Josh Harding as the only remaining Restricted Free Agent for the Wild to sign.  His arbitration hearing is scheduled for July 29.
