Minnesota Wild re-sign left wing Stephane Veilleux to 2-year, 2-way contract

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild re-signed left wing Stephane Veilleux to a two-year, two-way contract Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Veilleux played most of last season with Houston in the AHL. As a late call-up for more energy for the fourth line, he appeared in two of Minnesota's playoff games against Chicago. The two-way contract means he'll have a lesser salary if he's in the minors. The Wild have moved their AHL affiliate to Iowa for the 2013-14 season.

Veilleux was a third-round draft pick by the Wild in 2001 who was with the team until 2009. After brief stints with Tampa Bay and New Jersey, he rejoined Minnesota in a trade last year. Veilleux has 101 points in 460 career NHL games.
