Defenseman Justin Falk has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Minnesota Wild, the team announced Friday. Financial details were not disclosed.

Falk, 25, was drafted by Minnesota in the fourth round (No. 110) of the 2007 NHL Draft and played his first four seasons with the Wild.

Last season with the New York Rangers, he was a healthy scratch much of the time and had two assists and 20 penalty minutes in 21 games. In 129 games with Minnesota and New York, he has one goal, 17 points, a minus-33 rating and 120 penalty minutes.

He did not have a point in four Stanley Cup Playoff games with Minnesota in 2013.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
