Minnesota Wild sign defenceman Justin Falk to 1-year, 2-way contract

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have signed defenceman Justin Falk to a one-year, two-way contract.

Under the deal announced Friday, Falk will be paid his NHL salary only if he is on the NHL roster. If he is sent to the AHL, he will get a minor-league salary.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Falk, from Snowflake, Manitoba, had two assists and 20 penalty minutes in 21 games with the New York Rangers last season.

The 25-year-old Falk was drafted by the Wild in the fourth round in 2007. He has a goal, 14 assists and 100 penalty minutes in 108 regular-season games in parts of four seasons with Minnesota from 2009 to 2013.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
