Wild sign F Pominville to 5-year extension

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have signed forward Jason Pominville to a five-year contract extension.

The Wild announced the signing on Thursday in advance of the team's season opener against Winnipeg. Terms were not disclosed.

Pominville came to Minnesota from Buffalo last year in a trade for well-regarded prospects Matt Hackett and Johan Larsson. Pominville had four goals and five assists in 10 games for the Wild last season before the 2012 All-Star went down with a concussion.

Getting the deal done before the season started was a priority both for Pominville and the Wild.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
