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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
