The Wild has signed restricted free agent Kyle Brodziak to a three-year deal worth $3.45 million ($1.15 million cap number), thus avoiding a July 30 arbitration hearing.
Last RFA to sign is goalie Josh Harding, who has a July 29 arbitration hearing.
Also, Wild officially signed defenseman Ryan Lannon to a one-year deal.
The team is also in the midst of making a number of changes to its scouting department, I hear. As I mentioned when Chuck Fletcher was hired, typically in GM changes, mid-July is the time scouting changes are made.
