Wild sign Palmieri to two-way contract

The Minnesota Wild have agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with forward Nick Palmieri.

Palmieri had signed an American Hockey League deal to start the season and posted 9 goals and 19 points with 33 penalty minutes and a plus-9 rating in 36 games with Houston this season.

Acquired at the trade deadline last season from New Jersey, the 23-year-old Palmieri was scoreless in nine games with the Wild after he had four goals and seven points in 29 games with the Devils.

A third-round pick by New Jersey in the 2007 NHL Draft, Palmieri has career totals of 13 goals and 25 points in 87 games.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
