The deal was announced Wednesday. The 27-year-old has played in 26 NHL games, but none since 2012. Rechlicz played last season in the AHL.
Rechlicz is the third player the Wild have done a two-way deal with since free agency began Tuesday. They also agreed on two-way contracts with defenceman Stu Bickel and centre Brett Sutter, other players likely to bounce between the Wild and AHL affiliate Iowa this season. The Wild also signed defenceman Guillaume Gelinas Tuesday to an entry-level deal out of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
However, the big move by the Wild was signing left wing Thomas Vanek on Tuesday to a three-year contract.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin
