Brodziak Signed


According to Russo's Twitter account, Kyle Brodziak has signed a three year, $1.15 million per year deal. This avoids arbitration for both sides, as was expected. The fact that it is a three year deal, and not the standard one year that avoids arbitration should be a clear sign that Fletcher and Richards want Brodziak around.

MINNESOTA WILD SIGNS CENTER KYLE BRODZIAK TO THREE-YEAR CONTRACT
 
    SAINT PAUL/MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed center Kyle Brodziak (brohd-ZEE-ak) to a three-year contract. Brodziak was acquired from the Edmonton Oilers on June 27 during the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
 
    Brodziak, 25 (5/25/84), recorded 27 points (11-16=27) including three game-winning goals, a plus-4 rating and 21 penalty minutes in 79 games with Edmonton in 2008-09. He won 51.6 percent of his face-offs last season (489 of 947) while averaging 12:43 of ice time. The 6-foot-2, 209-pound native of St. Paul, Alberta tallied career highs with 14 goals and 17 assists in 80 games with Edmonton in 2007-08 and won 51.5 percent of his face-offs. He has appeared in 175 career NHL contests with the Oilers in parts of four seasons collecting 59 points (26-33=59) and 60 penalty minutes. Brodziak made his NHL debut on Oct. 15, 2005 at Calgary and scored his first career NHL goal on March 17, 2007 against St. Louis. He was originally selected by the Oilers in the seventh round (No. 214 overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. Brodziak was acquired by the Wild along with the Oilers’ sixth round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for the Wild’s fourth round pick and fifth round pick in this year’s draft.

Later all.

***Author's note*** The Ryan Lannon deal was also made official today through a Wild press release. That's just a head's up. No news.
