The Wild acquired Brodziak from the Edmonton Oilers in a trade on draft night. An arbitration hearing was scheduled for July 30.
The signing leaves goaltender Josh Harding as the remaining arbitration-eligible player on the team. His hearing is scheduled for July 29.
The Wild also signed defenceman Ryan Lannon to a one-year deal. Lannon played for new Wild coach Todd Richards with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in the AHL. Lannon spent last season with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL.
I challenged him to a goalie fight when we chatted before the game, but he didn't want to go. It was strange to see him at the other end of the ice, but I'm sure he felt the same way looking down at our end.
