ST. PAUL, Minn. -- For years, Matt Cooke made a living tormenting Minnesota Wild fans as a member of the Vancouver Canucks, a heated rival of the Wild a decade ago.

Wednesday, Cooke was officially introduced as a member of the Wild after signing a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the team on the opening day of free agency last Friday.

Though Cooke's game seemingly has evolved over the past couple of seasons, many locals remember the forward's role as an agitator with the Canucks, where Cooke spent his first nine seasons in the NHL.

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Oliver Lauridsen to a two-year contract worth $1.2 million, the team announced Wednesday.

Flames sign Backlund to two-year contract

Wednesday, 07.10.2013 / 4:52 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

The Calgary Flames on Wednesday signed center Mikael Backlund to a two-year, $3 million contract.

The 24-year-old was selected in the first round (No. 24) of the 2007 NHL Draft by the Flames and reached career highs of 10 goals and 25 points during the 2010-11 season.

Last season, Backlund had eight goals and 16 points in 32 games.

“Mikael really stepped up last season and took advantage of the change in direction under a new coaching staff,” Flames general manager Jay Feaster said. “He came into camp in very good shape and also had regained his confidence. He parlayed that into a strong season, and if it wasn’t for his (foot) injury we believe he would have progressed even further in his development. We need Mikael to be one of our go-to players this year, and we are excited about watching him continue to evolve and take that step to the next level as a player.”
