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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
