According to Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, forward Nick Palmieri has accepted his one-year, two-way qualifying offer from the Minnesota Wild.
Palmieri, 23, held out during the summer before signing an American Hockey League deal to play with the Houston Aeros this season. In 36 games with the Aeros, the right wing had nine goals and 10 assists and was a plus-9.
