Wild re-sign Falk to one-year deal

The Minnesota Wild re-signed restricted free-agent defenseman Justin Falk to a one-year, one-way contract Thursday. Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Falk, a 2007 fourth-round pick of the Wild, had nine points and 54 penalty minutes in 47 games. It was his first full NHL season after playing 25 games in splitting the previous two seasons between the NHL and the AHL.

Falk was sixth among all rookies last season in average ice time per game at 19:29, and was eighth in blocked shots with 78.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
