The Minnesota Wild on Friday agreed to terms with defensemen Jonathon Blum and Jon Landry each on a one-year, two-way contract.

Blum, 24, had seven points (one goal) in 35 games with the Nashville Predators last season, and 12 points (one goal) in 34 games with the Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League (AHL).

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound California native has 22 points (seven goals) in 91 NHL games during three seasons with the Predators. He was selected by Nashville in the first-round (No. 23) of the 2007 NHL Draft.

Landry, 30, had 33 points (eight goals) in 72 games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL last season. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Quebec native split the 2011-12 season between Bridgeport and the Colorado Eagles (ECHL).

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
