Wild Sign John Madden

No. Not that one. Yeah, THAT one.

In a highly unexpected move, the Wild have signed veteran forward John Madden to a one year contract, worth $1 million + incentives, according to Russo.

Madden is a defensive specialist, leading the league several times in short handed goals, and has been nominated for the Selke more than once. Surprisingly, he has never won the Selke, but that is what happens when you play in a league with Pavel Datsyuk.

This is an interesting move by the Wild, especially in a month generally reserved for vacations and deep pondering by NHL GMs.
