ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Wild General Manager Bill Guerin today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has re-signed forward Jordan Greenway to a two-year, $4.2 million contract ($2.1 million AAV).
Greenway, 23, collected 28 points (8-20=28), a plus-2 rating and 54 penalty minutes (PIM) in 67 games with Minnesota last season. The 6-foot-6, 225-pound native of Canton, N.Y., set career highs in points, assists, hits (95), blocked shots (44), PIM and TOI/game (14:10). He led the Wild in takeaways (41), ranked third in PIM and hits and ranked third amongst team forwards in blocked shots. The left-shot forward skated in his 100th career NHL game at Anaheim (Nov. 5) and netted his first career game-winning goal vs. Arizona (Nov. 14). Greenway recorded 24 points (12-12=24) in 81 games during the 2018-19 season.
He made his NHL debut at Nashville on March 27, 2018. Greenway skated in all five of the Wild's 2018 Stanley Cup Playoff games to become the first player to appear in the Olympics, NCAA Hockey Tournament and Stanley Cup Playoffs in the same season. Greenway scored his first career NHL goal in Game 3 vs. Winnipeg on April 15, 2018, to become the first player in franchise history to score first NHL goal in the playoffs.
He owns 53 points (20-33=53) and 83 PIM in 154 career NHL games with Minnesota and has tallied two points (1-1=2) in nine career playoff contests. Greenway was selected by the Wild in the second round (50th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
