Kyle Brodziak Signs Contract Extension With Minnesota Wild

The Minnesota Wild have signed Kyle Brodziak to a contract extension, keeping him away from UFA status going toward the trade deadline.

The Minnesota Wild have had rumors swirling regarding Marek Zidlicky recently, but they've obviously had other things in mind as well as they announced on Sunday that talented two-way center Kyle Brodziak to a contract extension. Brodziak was in the last year of his contract and was set to be a Unrestricted Free Agent once the year ended.

So far this season, the former Oiler Brodziak has 15 goals and 14 assists, on pace to beat his total points (37) from last season. Quite good numbers for a guy who's supposed to just be a grinder who gets good faceoff numbers. Getting Brodziak to sign an extension was likely one of the top priorities of the team during the season so it's good for the Wild that they got the deal done sooner rather than later.

The Wild still have several UFA's on the squad heading towards the trade deadline, including Josh Harding and Mike Lundin.
