Wild add forwards T. Mitchell, Konopka

While the Minnesota Wild were pursuing Zach Parise on Sunday, they also added a pair of forwards early in free agency.

Minnesota agreed to terms with Torrey Mitchell on a three-year pact reportedly worth $1.9 million per season and Zenon Konopka on a two-year deal. Mitchell had nine goals and 19 points in 66 games for the Sharks this past season, his second straight campaign with nine goals.

Konopka had three goals and five points in 55 games with the Ottawa Senators. He also had 193 penalty minutes after leading the League in that category in the previous two seasons. Minnesota will be Konopka's fourth team in as many years after stops with Tampa Bay, the New York Islanders and Ottawa.

Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
